Abbott-Canfield’s purist aesthetic is marked in equal measure by rigor and directness. Her irregular geometric shapes seem lovingly intuited while her surfaces and edges are clean though insistently hand-made.  Her stark color choices impart a sense of having been independently arrived at in each image rather than being an across the board reductive decision.

This was an artcritical PIC in March 2010.
