(Manchester, England, b. 1966)
Joshua Abarbanel is engaged in an on-going examination of creation and impermanence, regularly using forms and patterns evocative of biological, botanical, geological, and mechanical structures. Finding inspiration in fractals, accretive formations, and the Fibonacci sequence, Abarbanel often creates art that toys with perspective and simultaneously evokes microscopic and aerial perspectives. These compositions serve as metaphors for archetypal relationships between people, between individuals and communities, and between humankind and the planet, and also illustrate how disparate parts can come together to make a whole in beautiful and startling ways.
