A Piece to Collect: Contemporary Collective presents Abigail Box’ DISCO

Friday, November 13th, 2015
A Piece to Collect, is a new feature on our blog where we will ask our Member galleries to select an art work from their AWAD Shop offering every week. This week Elinor Olisa of Contemporary Collective talks about about a painting that, in her own words, ‘would complement any art collection’.

Who is the artist: Abigail Box
What is the title of the work? ‘Disco’
What is the medium? Oil on hand stretched canvas
What is the price? £3,500
What are the 3 reasons you have you selected this work?

1) Artwork I collect always tells a story and the big cat in this painting grabbed by attention from the first moment I saw it, telling a story and providing the familiarity of a narrative I am sure I must have heard or read. The colours and the title ‘Disco’ also brings in 80s glam into the mix.
2) Abigail Box painstakingly builds up patterned and textured layers over many hours. Yet her work maintains delicacy and translucency which for me adds a sense fragility to this strong painting. The juxtaposition of the powerful tiger languishing on the ornate, patterned floor with the palm leaves is a luxurious and powerful statement for any wall large enough to hold it.
3) Abigail Box is an artist whose work I have admired and championed since first being introduced after her graduation from Camberwell College of Arts. She is as fascinating as the work she creates.

Sophie Derrick’s new work ‘Shifting States’ at Degree Art Gallery, Vyner Street

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

In Shifting States, Derrick explores and challenges the alchemic possibilities within her process. Seeking to heighten her unique style of production, blending photography with painting, reality with fiction, and the digital with the tangible, to create her trademark, painterly works.

Collectors and followers of Derrick will have witnessed her continued, rapid rise through the Art World since her graduation from Wimbledon MA Fine art in 2012, which has been further accelerated by her recent collaboration with recording artist of the moment FYFE, as well as being featured in investment publication Hedge Magazine.

“The movement, paint and photographic techniques used in this new body of work create an intervention between myself in the work and the viewer, and a skewed, distorted reality of what the piece actually is.” – Sophie Derrick
