About

Abbott works across drawing, collage, performance, sound and sculpture. From the immediacy of mark-making to the juxtaposition of printed imagery, Abbott’s 2D work is tactile and visceral and has inspired his journey into live art and sculpture. Gestural actions find their roots in drawing and these drawings can become sculptures. Graphic yet bodily, spontaneous yet composed, Abbott puts the life into abstraction and allows us into a world of his own.
