Abigail Poplin

A North Carolina native transplanted to New Orleans.

As a Southern woman, Abigail’s work harnesses a brutal sensuality that balances between the arousing and the repulsive.  Walking a fine line between the healthy and the decaying, the beautiful and the grotesque, Abigail’s work finds a way using the claustrophobic discomfort of looking inward anatomically and thereby metaphorically.  The work is meant to challenge as a catalyst to spur a personal investigation as to what is creating the discomfort. It seduces the viewer not to look away.

Abigail received a BFA from East Carolina University and studied abroad in Florence, Italy.
