“When I am painting, I try to be present and engaged with the present moment. Many of my paintings depict seemingly small moments in life, but I hope to show the value and beauty that is found in the moments in life that are often looked over.”

Abigail Dudley is a keen observer of light and the complexities of interior space. A recent graduate from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) in Philadelphia PA, her work has garnered acclaim for its subtle, sophisticated use of color and deeply sensitive vision of the world around her. Her figures often fade and merge with backgrounds and interiors, gentle silhouettes in repose or contemplation, entwined with the very environments in which they inhabit. Influenced by the colors found in Italian frescos, her palettes are inherently light-focused.
