This exhibition in the Glass House features work Abe made with his father at his childhood home; a Christmas tree farm in Northern Vermont. The single sculpture is made of only two materials: wood and wool. Poplar logs were cut and milled with a chainsaw on the farm’s overgrown pastures. Raw sheep fleece was collected from a local farm. These simple materials open conversations between past, present, and place. This human scale sculpture offers a personal visceral encounter: body of sculpture to body of viewer.
Abe was born in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont in 1975. He now lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. He received his B.A. in fine arts from Bard College and his M.F.A. from Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College. His work has been exhibited in New York, San Francisco, Boston, Philadelphia, China, Germany, Belgium, and France. He teaches at Parsons The New School for Design.
