Meet the Artist: Abi Spendlove

A unique opportunity to connect with practicing artists contributing to The Hat District Creative Ecosystem.

As part of our Creative Ecosystem, Luton Culture invites artists engaged in the development and creation of the Hat District project to talk about their work, their practice and the work they have created to inspire the people and young creative talent of Luton.
 

About the artist

Abi Spendlove was born in Portsmouth in 1985. She currently lives and works in Luton, where she is Bursary Artist at The Hat Factory Arts Centre. She has a BA (Hons) from Central Saint Martins and an MA in Fine Art from the University of Hertfordshire.

Her practice explores objects, places and elements that are in-between. Gaps in language, hidden places, decaying objects. Her work aims to capture that which is shifting from multiple perspectives, using a variety of media including drawing, video, photography and installation. Water, light, time and entropy are themes that recur and overlap.
