Abi Box is a London based artist, whose work is inspired by the different places and environments that she visits. Her paintings look to challenge our sense of depth, rearranging space on the canvas while moving between figuration and abstraction. Traveling from place to place, the different flora, like brushstrokes, fluctuate wildly in ‘style’ and these regional nuances have begun to inspire Box’s own vocabulary of mark making. 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.
Since graduating from London University of the Arts Camberwell, Abi has had solo shows in London and Hong Kong and her work is held in both a number of private and public collections including the University of the Arts London Alumni Collection.
