ABOUT THE ARTIST

Abraham Nelson works toward a character driven story within each of his pieces. Falsely innocent and consistently chaotic, the creatures, persons and living dead things come to life in the imagery he creates. He is a Toronto based graduate of OCAD and a participant in the recent ‘The Villain Show’ event and the upcoming ‘You Know What Love Is’ group show at Sleeping Giant Gallery.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Automated Regrowth is the exploration made by three artists into the relationship between the human world and the natural world. In their works, Molly McCracken, Abraham Nelson and Katherine Verhoeven look at the good, bad, and the beautiful in structures, cities, manmade materials, and look for an optimistic alliance between our environment and our constructed lifestyles. With themes of fantasy and reality, the trio invites you to explore their worlds, and to contemplate a life outside of concrete expectations.
