Transiție (from Romanian transition), is a collection of works by Abraham Sprinkle, created between 2019 and 2023. The work chronicles the artist’s exploration of a new medium, on a new territory in a pre/post-pandemic society, having just moved from New York, settled in, and found new inspiration in the Chesapeake Bay area. He outlines transition as an inspirational period in our paths, a state of mind in which one brings everything he/she learned to the table, reflect, rearrange, and applies it to the future. “It is a necessary time to recharge. Like in airports, where most of us spend time in between point A and B, life continues and might take an exciting turn.”  The works are organized in sets/series (Blue Transition, Garden Transition, Turkish Transition, Nomadic Transition) and correspond to dates they were conceived.
