Abi Box

Camberwell College of Arts (BA Hons Painting , 2008)

Abigail Box is represented by Contemporary Collective.

Painting as poetry makes sense to me, especially with concern to translation and interpretation, words painting pictures and pictures inspiring words.  I like to think of the possibilities present in gesture and suggestion, to think of light as something so bright that it might be audible.  When I paint, my mind is in constant flux for how a painting can be made, constructed, pieced together, and subsequently read and understood.  I want to make spacious, minimal, balanced paintings, I want to make awkward, messy, chockablock paintings.  I’d like to make both kinds of painting at the same time, and then there’s the risk, every time, of making a bad painting.  The good paintings are so often accidental, ignorantly brave and beautifully reckless.

Abi Box is a British artist based between London and Bermuda.  Graduating with a fine art degree from Camberwell School of Art in London, her work focuses on gesture and mark making.  Box’s work is held in both a number of private and public collections including the UAL Alumni Collection and Simmons Contemporary.  She has had several artist residencies in Switzerland, Wales and Peru, and recent exhibitions include; Paper Cuts curated by Kristian Day, Saatchi Gallery, London; The Smaller The Larger curated by Kate Hiley, Sobering Galerie, Paris; as well as having work selected for ASC 40° Celsius and the Bermuda Biennial.
