An introspective critique of the nature of the self and its liability to impose

About

For Abbey, such an enquiry is about broadly engaging an introspective critique of the nature of the ‘self' and its liability to ‘impose'. He does not set out to impose or tell the audience what or how they should interpret from the text-as-image, rather it is for them to reflect upon his 'artistic portrayal of truths' An important 'truth' that Abbey sees conveyed by his work is one of hope not hate, of tolerance and coexistence. He would argue that if God is able to afford choice and tolerance to those who deny the divine, allowing them access to everything in this world, then why do we as humans feel the need to deny humanity that same choice and tolerance?
