Abbi Torrance is interested in the human condition. Her deceptively simple figurative pencil drawings explore issues of free will and control. In these drawings Torrance uses performance to highlight how people connect to each other, the systems around us and space. Graph paper backgrounds make a…Show more statement about how human beings are increasingly seen as data, markets and demographics. Does the individual still have agency?
Torrance has been exhibited widely. Including the Royal Academy Summer exhibition, the ICA, Discerning Eye and a solo show in Galerie Nivit-Curzone, Paris in 2015.Show less
"Torrance’s work is a fascinating commentary on today's world in which ideologies are unconsciously imparted to us from a young age. In her work, the individual loses their status and becomes part of the overall pattern. I enjoy how overtly political she is, while wielding only a pencil."
Rebecca Gordon - Rise Art Curator
