Trevor Abbot

The principal focus of my print work is how we use technology to make and distribute images of the world around us. I use printmaking to make concrete what are often incomplete, very precarious low definition 'technical' images and to explore questions concerning technologically failed vision or obstructed seeing whereby the more immediate images become the less there is to see.
