Joshua Abarbanel is an artist who examines creation and impermanence, regularly using forms and patterns evocative of biological, botanical, geological, and mechanical structures. Finding inspiration in fractals, accretive formations, and the Fibonacci sequence, Abarbanel's work is suffused with paradox: between the made and the grown, life and death, and microscopic and aerial perspectives. His sculptures and other projects are visual metaphors for archetypal relationships between people, between individuals and communities, and between humankind and the planet, and also illustrate how disparate parts can come together to make a whole in beautiful and startling ways.
American, born in Manchester, England 1966
