Cathy Abraham’s work reflects her belief in the intrinsic link between art and science.
Using a structure of numbers and the practice of repetition, she questions the boundaries between reality, fantasy and illusion, and tries to find ways to shift perspectives.
“Counting forms a fundamental part of my artistic practice, paying special attention to the numbers 9, 18 and 36. I work systematically to unlock surface meaning in the search for a deeper understanding of purpose and logic in every day occurrences.”
