About Nathan Abbe
Abbe uses everyday objects and materials to explore how time and process result in permanent changes. The artist reflects on how these shifts often manifest themselves in ways that appear organic and natural despite being acted upon by rational means. Abbe works with artist Daniel Arsham at Snarkitecture, a design studio “operating in territories between the disciplines of art and architecture.” Abbe’s ink drawings of repeated patterns take on architectural forms of linear and circular construction.
