Sink or Swim is based upon recycling found household materials, Abby uses the natural world as her inspiration. She creates surreal environments, using synthetic materials to reference organic forms. The works are inspired by extreme and desolate landscapes such as the desert and the deep sea. Through distortion and abstraction, the works recall exotic life forms. By experimenting with familiar everyday materials found in the places we inhabit, the work presents a tension between familiarity and absurdity in every day life.
Abby Humphreys has recently graduated from the University of Leeds.
