DESCRIPTION

As a printmaker and photographer, Adabel Allen creates images inspired from her dialogue and encounters with birds and nature. Paralleling the natural world’s tendencies with her own is crucial to storytelling in her work – using birds and nature as symbols and metaphors for the transformation, transition and transience she is experiencing in life. Utilizing the camera to capture fleeting moments in nature plays an important role in how Allen created this body of work.  This “Transitational” period is an exploration of self, relationships and the environment. “Feeling like a forest having been burnt to the ground, sprouting with new life”, Allen gives us a glimpse into her experiences of life through nature.
