Chrissie Abbott "Casual Cosmology" exhibition at China Heights Gallery


Chrissie Abbott
Casual Cosmology

China Heights is proud to be presenting 'Casual Cosmology', an exhibition by East London artist Chrissie Abbott.

Influenced lightly by 60's and early 70's vinyl sleeves, photographs and typography, and heavily by nature, space, time, and in turn the future; Abbott creates tangible versions of alternate realities, dreams of nature and internal theories of metaphysics and the apocalypse, by using mixed media approaches including collage, pen and ink, acrylic and silkscreen printing.

While Cosmology is a disciplined study of the universe as a whole - seeking to understand the origin, structure and space-time relationships of the universe - neon colours in Abbott's work direct reactions to a casual, sunnier side of theoretical thinking, while her ultimately psychedelic visuals leak drops of irony and humour. Paired, these applications keep the artworks from getting too deep, and sequentially predictable.

'Casual Cosmology' is a translation of pattern work and found imagery into Abbott's own predictions of the future we're headed towards, which is essentially a big dayglow hug.
