About the artist a portrait of Abigail Lipski London based landscape painter

A contemporary artist and painter based in London; creating original paintings of colourful landscapes from fictional lore.

I am a London-based fine artist painting fantastical visual narratives based on intuitively created fiction and lore. I work in oils and watercolours, using vibrant colours and bold brushwork, reminiscent of Fauvism. My paintings are exoteric and include unique recurring characters and fictional rituals within my surreal landscapes. I create sculpture and installation artwork; a virtual and sensory experience often described as a walk inside one of my painted landscapes. My practice involves layered history, fractured memory and myth influenced by nature, music, writing, powerful female icons and my birthplace, Epping Forest. Collating photography, collage and sculpture I recontextualise abstracted visuals from my surroundings, popular culture and within memory. I think of my work as escapist, dream-like and a portal through which the audience can make otherworldly discoveries. 

 

My work has been exhibited in group shows across London, most recently at Graham Hunter Gallery, Bargehouse Oxo Tower, Truman Brewery on Brick Lane and Flowers Gallery W1.
