The tipping point between figurative and abstract painting
A recent commission by London based artist, Abi Box, for a private collector.
Abi’s work explores the tipping point between figurative and abstract painting. Recognisable landscapes, break down into works where light simply shines through colourful texture. Reinventing observations by interrupting accurate depiction with painterly translations, Box creates visual descriptions that are poetically detached from reality. Impressions, full of subtleties and nuances that are just as much about the paint as the subject matter.
The brief was for 6ft canvas based on studies and photographs taken from a recent trip to Burmuda.
Since graduating from London University of the Arts Camberwell, Abi has had solo shows in London and Hong Kong, most recently exhibiting with the esteemed Simmons & Simmons collection. Her work is held in both a number of private and public collections including the University of the Arts London Alumni Collection.
