Forest + Found

Working collaboratively under their studio practice Forest + Found, Max Bainbridge and Abigail Booth work with wood, natural pigments and textiles, to produce sculptural and wall-based works.

Bainbridge works on sculptures, taking the natural forms of the material as a starting point for carving and working sections of wood into anthropological objects, and Booth produces large, abstract textile pieces that deconstruct the language of drawing and painting using natural pigments to produce fragmented compositions on the wall. Specialising in building relationships between grounded objects and the abstract, liminal space in their textiles, they create installations that allow audiences to interact spatially and conceptually with their work.
