Abi Box is a British artist based between London and Bermuda. Her work, which focuses on gesture and mark making, is held in a number of private and public collections, including the UAL Alumni Collection and Simmons Contemporary. Recent exhibitions include Illusion & Abstraction: Capturing the Landscape at the Bermuda National Gallery (2021), Paper Cuts at the Saatchi Gallery, London (2018) and The Smaller The Larger at Sobering Galerie, Paris (2016).

She says: “I like to think of the possibilities present in gesture and suggestion. When I paint, my mind is in constant flux for how a painting can be made, constructed, pieced together and subsequently read and understood.

“I want to make spacious, minimal, balanced paintings. I want to make awkward, messy, chock-a-block paintings. I’d like to make both kinds of painting at the same time. Then there’s the risk, every time, of making a bad painting. The good paintings are so often accidental, ignorantly brave and beautifully reckless.”
