Abigail Drapkin
Seattle, Washington

Abigail captures a multitude of moments in a single composition. The passage of time is articulated in the ghost-like iterations of her figures despite the two-dimensional picture plane. The transparent layers of paint symbolize ephemeral layers of hours and minutes. The viewer is able to visually peel back layer after layer to understand how each painting’s narrative unfolds. Abigail is currently working toward her MFA at University of Washington in Seattle.

I opened this beautiful gem of a painting and was immediately happy I made the decision to order Abigail's painting! The expression and feeling she caught in the subjects in this painting are delightful - her brushwork is beautiful. Thank you, Abigail Drapkin! And ordering from UGallery was easy, the painting arrived well protected.
