Through the forms of print-making, painting and medal-making, Abigail Burt’s work explores the relationship of the human form within varying landscapes, both urban and rural.
Most of Abigail’s inspiration is drawn from the beauty and culture of the places she visits and lives in, finding interest in the detail of any place she discovers, be it the most remote and wild forests of Wales, to the urban walks of London. Through her work she aims to capture the essence of the people and places in which she immerses herself.
Abigail Burt graduated from the University College Falmouth and spent four months studying Fine Art at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Venice; a period of living which heavily influenced her development as an artist. Following her degree, the British Art Medal Society awarded Abigail the position of New Medalist which gave her the chance to study the collections of medals within the archives of the British Museum and the V&A, spend a period of time alongside the engraving department at the Royal Mint, and receive the privileged opportunity to travel to Bulgaria to study under renowned medal-maker Professor Nikolov.
