This week I spoke with Sean Cabanig and I absolutely fell in love with her art pieces. Right now, Cabbing is currently working towards getting her BFA in metals at CSULB. She is from Los Angeles but now lives in Long Beach. Cabanig has always had a passion for art ever since she was a little girl. She puts so much into her pieces and it usually takes up to a month to complete.
Cabanig uses different types of metals for her art pieces. She mostly creates jewelry pieces like necklaces and rings. She uses bronze, sterling silver, fine silver, and copper. The jewelry she creates looks really heavy and strong. Some pieces look smooth and others look a bit rougher. I also noticed that she uses many different shapes like circular and cylinder shapes.
When it comes to the art processes, Cabanig has realized that the most important thing to know is that patience is the key. She states that she values patience and feels that you cannot rush anything in order for the work to be great. She feels that if you take time and not rush then the results will be worth the wait. Cabanig loves the fact that metal allows her to creates her feelings about the environment and her thoughts. What makes her happy most is when she looks at her work and realizes that it is enough and that she is happy that she did it in the first place rather than over thinking.
I thought that her pieces were very nice and I love the fact that she puts her heart into her work. She just goes for it without overthinking and I think a lot of times people are too afraid to do what they want because they over think. I also love that she too realizes that patience is key because it is. We also rush things and hope that things go by faster but never sit back and just patiently wait. Patience is everything and I totally get her feeling behind that and how she can explain that with her art work and the process. I enjoyed viewing the jewelry pieces and thought she was inspiring.
