In striking works of plentiful hue combining realism and abstraction, Jabre explores intersubjectivity and the subconscious. Often relying on the potent symbology of dreams – the tree of life, checkers and hair are all imagery characterizing her work – Jabre expresses the complexity of her transcultural upbringing in America and Lebanon. An important subject with which the artist has engaged since 2007 is the production of ceramic Koi fish, a process which draws upon her various skills in painting, drawing, and sculpting. Made completely by hand without molds, each Koi fish is unique, lightweight and fully hollow. Hand-carved with expressive shapes and designs representing the scales of the fish, for Jabre the Japanese Koi often serve as a symbol of love.

Natasha Jabre was born in Connecticut to parents of Lebanese origin, and grew up in Virginia. The artist currently lives and works in New York City and has exhibited professionally throughout greater Virginia and in Montreal.
