More about Illumination:
The installation is about spending time in nature allowing us to connect, relate, and experience the world in an open state. As we delve deeper and deeper into experiences in the natural environment, we expand our appreciation and understanding of what is important in life. These paintings reflect the connections between the physical and spirit world; thinning the veil of reality, sharing the subtleties of life, in full illumination.
More about Sage Cattabriga-Alosa:
Sage grew up spending summers mountain biking, skateboarding, and enjoying the numerous rivers and creeks of southern Oregon. Winters were spent in Wyoming where skiing became a driving passion in his life. This love and appreciation for the outdoors formed alongside a passion for artistic creativity. Two years into a fine art major, Sage headed for the hills to further develop his creative expression on snow, tipping the scale of pursuit. That path led to many awards, recognitions, and opportunities within the action sport(s) industry, landing Sage in the eye of professional ski stardom.
His fluid, unique ski style has made its way into 20+ action sports films and landed him on the cover of many major outdoor publications. This lifestyle of a pro athlete means a life on the road, traveling all over the world throughout the year. It’s an opportunity he is grateful for, but it also forces his art to travel with him. While paint and brush rarely make it into his luggage, three things he always has while traveling are his computer, camera and Wacom tablet. These tools fuse his love for the digital medium, and with gadgets in hand, his artistic passion is harnessed, finding the possibilities endless. Now Sage produces most of his work while on the road, influenced by the people and places that he travels, and the art he sees along the way.

Hey! What’s up? My name is Sage Cattabriga-Alosa and I’m here at evo Seattle, opening the gallery with some of my art. And I’m real psyched about what’s going on here today, this is the first solo show I’ve ever had. It’s great to have it at a ski shop. Some of the artwork I’ve done over the years has made it on to skis like The Automatic, from Atomic, and also working with Smith on this piece behind me and on some of the ID series that Smith has done. It’s a great way to share some art, bring some it into a ski shop and incorporate into the gear we use.
Today, we went out and hit some famous trails around Seattle on our bikes. Got to get a little muddy and have some fun.
About 24 hours ago, I rolled into Seattle last night and started out setting up for the show. It was really the first time for me to see all my pieces, all in one place displayed, with the lights. That whole process was pretty fun and tonight were having an opening/ little party, invited a bunch a people here. I have a few special things up my sleeve for tonight. Not only the paintings and stuff on the walls. I brought a light sculpture that I built recently this summer and also I’m doing some in-house projection, on a little custom area of the store. Integrating the store and some other digital realms involving, projection, sculpture and print art.
