A message from the artist 😊:
My name is Abbie Derzekos and I am an abstract painter from Kingston, Ontario. My work consists of large-scale acrylic and India ink paintings on stretched canvas. I studied Visual and Creative Arts at Haliburton School of the Arts and had two showings at the Rails End Gallery during my time as a student. Once I finished school I took a break from art and ventured out into other fields, such as nutrition and personal training. I also became a mother of a beautiful little girl named Isla. Since then I have re-discovered my passion for art. For the past year I have been doing abstract paintings in my spare time. Abstract Expressionist, Franz Kline's use of bold powerful forms has been a major influence on my work. I use heavy mediums to provide my work with a textured feel and thoroughly enjoy listening to the different interpretations people have of my work. I like to think of art as fun, engaging and as a way to express ones self. I try to use this philosophy not only with my paintings, but in life as well.
My work consists of acrylic and india ink abstract paintings. They range from fluid paintings focusing on the movement and flow of the colours, to very textured and layered paintings focusing on the contrast and shapes.
