Abi Box is a British artist based between London and Bermuda. Graduating with a fine art degree from Camberwell School of Art in London, her work focuses on gesture and mark making. Recent exhibitions include Artist’s Artist at OHSH Projects, London, England, curated by Henry Hussey and Sophia Olver; Illusion and Abstraction: Capturing the Landscape at Bermuda National Gallery curated by Mitchell Klink; Paper Cuts curated by Kristian Day, at Saatchi Gallery, London, England; and The Smaller The Larger curated by Kate Hiley, Sobering Galerie, Paris, France.

She says: “The surfaces of my paintings are visibly layered, thin translucent washes covered with rough and opaque or heavily saturated brushwork. I’ve found myself describing these surfaces as worn tapestries. They have a patchy and threadbare quality to them in the way that the dry brushwork catches the weave of the canvas. The contrast between these two fields gives the paintings a sense of depth, glowing opaque pastels pinging against dull atmospheric translucency.”
