A master of symmetry, and artful product placement, Abi Green knows exactly how to make an accessory look interesting. And not just interesting, she knows how to make it the subject of a soft and playful work. She knows how to make it command attention, to mean more than any other accessory possibly could.
Abi works with footwear designers such as Alexandra Mann, and accessories created by C.V.G, collaborating to bring traditional products to life. Leather harnesses are wrapped around floating orbs of water, and everything looks tactile. Shoes are propped up against pink cups and flowers; an entire scene based around one item. There is an element of the theatrical in her work, a touch of set design and dramatics.
Crustaceans and plastic jellyfish adorn glassware in 'Under The Sea', and in 'Neptune’s Daughter' mermaid-like girls pose with artfully arranged knitwear and accessories. In her work for The Mark Magazine, each cosmetic item has it’s own backdrop and colour scheme, innovatively showcasing familiar products. Reading like a beautiful storybook with a penchant for the sweet (doughnuts, biscuits and candy make regular appearances), Abi Green’s work is like a dazzling monochromatic accessories catalogue, one that you could keep flipping through and never get bored of.
