Abigail Leach is a contemporary artist who delves into both personal and societal issues. Having studied art at school, Abigail is predominantly self-taught. Growing up in a theatre family provided her with a wealth of emotions that she aims to capture in her work. The theatre was a safe and magical place where people went to be entertained.

Through her travels, both physical and emotional, Abigail seeks to uncover the essence of the human experience. Her art often features the transport used during her journeys, representing the discovery of herself or the world around her.

Abigail’s art sometimes reflects an exploration of existentialist ideas. The use of comedy, agony, and irony is one of the ways of telling a story which in turn makes sense of the past, present, and future, with an emphasis on questioning the nature of existence itself.

Abigail hopes to challenge the norm and invite viewers to question their beliefs and assumptions about the world and serves as a puzzle that prompts self-reflection and a deeper understanding of what it means to be human.
