About Irene Abraham

I am interested in the swirl of information that surrounds us. I use common forms of representation such as maps, puzzles, graphs, data systems, games, text and photographs of natural phenomena as source material for my work. This imagery is then translated, subverted and distorted, utilizing the space between abstraction and representation.
