Abi Birkinshaw

I make paintings that narrate my own lived experience as a queer non-binary artist; they are a synthesis of my day-to-day life. My most recent work forms an attempt to reconcile an angry, confused adolescence with the stillness of self-acceptance found in my mid-twenties.
Headless figures and disembodied limbs co-exist alongside everyday objects in a world saturated with oil paint. This liminal space between the real and the imagined and past and the present is where my work often lies.
Abi is an artist from South Wales, based in Cardiff.
