Talk: Abigail Reynolds
Abigail Reynolds’ assemblages of glass, industrial materials, pages from books, and photographs address issues to do with the land and rural affairs, but they are not a primarily ecological preoccupation. Rather, they consider how the land in the UK has been socialized, and how agriculture as well as environment has recently maintained in Britain.
Abigail Reynolds lives in St Just, Cornwall, and has a studio at Porthmeor in St Ives. She studied English Literature at St Catherine’s College Oxford University. Her interest in books & libraries prompts her collages and sculpture which are often composed of found photographs spliced to create fresh narratives. In March 2016 she was awarded the BMW Art Journey prize to travel to lost libraries along the Silk Road.
