Artists > Abi Kremer

Abi Kremer has had a varied artistic career spanning public and private practice.  She has work in collections such as the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery and Museum and R.N.L.I.   Commissions include a wall plaque for the Queen’s Golden Jubilee and site specific work for the Royal Bournemouth Hospital.

 

Currently the energy of woodland spaces and structures inspire work which reflects an interest in prismatic colour and arabesque movement.  The influence of Japanese calligraphy and print making underpins this, also an admiration for the tachiste techniques adopted by artists of mid 20th century America and the St. Ives movement, such as Willelm de Kooning and Winifred Nicholson.  Translation into paint of organic phenomena addresses the subconscious, resulting in fantastical landscapes.  Techniques of washes, masking and stippling create a process structure within which intuitive responses can flourish.  Working with chance and accident is fundamental to her approach. 

 

Music and dance are further sources of inspiration, leading to collaborations with dance companies such as Ballet Rambert .  A long standing career as an art lecturer has cross referenced and nourished the work. 

 

A recently published book Abi Kremer Colour and Inspiration, with essays by leading figures in the arts, will be on sale in the gallery.
