Abigail was born in 1999 in rural New Jersey and is now based in Baltimore, MD where she is attending the Maryland Institute College of art and pursuing her BFA in Painting and a concentration in Curation. Having studied at MICA, The Art Academy of Hillsborough, The New York Academy’s Desiderio workshop, and Rick Casali’s Studio, Abigail has gained a wide range of skills varying from realistic oil painting, large-scale abstract installation, sculpture, fibers, and ceramics.
“My work illustrates the complex, intimate relationships within our domestic spaces. Rendered as large-scale, realistic oil paintings. The various color palettes, manipulation of light, and the uncanny labor-intensive realism all bring the viewer closer to the painting allowing them to be submerged in the narrative.
My paintings draw from my love of cinema, and fascination with the physical separation of interior architecture like windows and doorways in our homes. I manipulate the perspective and lighting of these beautifully mundane spaces to highlight the physical and emotional separation in American domesticity.”
