‘Floored’ is Abigail Box’s solo show, where she continues to be inspired by the use of technology in her work, exploring the manipulation of image through Photoshop, which is evident in this new body of work, as a continuation from her previous ‘Gif’ works.
The paintings in ‘Floored’, look at how composition and structure within an image might guide an understanding of the potential for space and direction within the canvas, by purposefully setting out to be structurally incorrect, somewhat awry.
Backgrounds and foregrounds become confused as certain perspectives don’t correlate with one another and in other cases the ground has lost its balance resulting in making the contents appear as though they might perhaps slide from the canvas in… into an unknown direction. This misalignment continues through the contrasting themes and subjects - inside and outside joke around in a manner made simple by copying and pasting, massive shapes of tiger lay next to glossy houseplants and wild stripes clash against kitchen tiles and skewed parquet flooring.
