Featured artist of the month: Abbey Bunnell

Print Friendly

This month’s featured artist is Abbey Bunnell of Oil City. The following is her own words describing her creative motivation and process.

I paint to understand and fully experience my surroundings. I am an impatient observer and never truly see anything until I interpret it onto a two-dimensional surface. I am curious to know how things are constructed and am more intrigued by how something came to be, rather than the final outcome. As a painter I am compelled to study the human figure, attracted to its elements and fascinated by how shapes, colors and planes interact. I see the figure as a construction not unlike that of a building. Using a broad range of paint application, such as thin layers that drip down the surface of the canvas to thicker strokes applied with the palette knife helps reinforce this comparison. We are structures built with many facets and subtleties. The interaction of these components with each other and with their surroundings is something I will always want to explore.
I am a 2011 graduate of Edinboro University, obtaining my Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting and minor in art history. I reside in my hometown of Oil City, PA where I have been an artist tenant in the National Transit Studios since July of this year. I sell original work as well as prints in my studio and online through Society6. Eventually, I would like to get into the illustration field, particularly editorial or children’s book illustration. If you are interested in purchasing a print or have an idea for a commission, you can contact me at:
