The Wash | 2018

About this project

With her practice rooted in drawing, Abigail’s large-scale textile assemblages are meditations on the language of the drawn line. Evoking simplicity and minimalism in in the quiet gesture and movement of the hand, her work seeks a connection to the monumental landscapes they originate from. Using a combination of earth, iron and wood, Abigail slowly builds up concentrations of rich overlaid colour before piecing her grid-works individually by hand and machine.
