Representing galleries


Utilizing technological tools, handwork, and machinery, Joshua Abarbanel’s art is an on-going exploration of forms and patterns, using shapes, colors, and compositions evocative of biological, botanical, and geological structures. Finding inspiration in fractal patterns, accretive structures, and the Fibonacci sequence, Abarbanel creates work that often simultaneously evokes microscopic and aerial perspectives as metaphors for all relationships—between people, between individuals and communities, between humankind and the planet—and how disparate parts can come together to make a whole in sometimes beautiful and startling ways.
