‘We’d been talking about my connections with things and the love i held for whatever / whoever came and went in my life. You said ‘hold on tightly, let go lightly’ and despite the context I don’t think I’m very good at that. I crave these connections compulsively and my heart aches constantly.’ Abbey Rich
Lifeblood is a collection of handprinted, handmade garments alongside paintings and drawings created alone and with the love of everyone she knows. The opening night on October 20th will serve as a celebration and launch of Abbey's Summer Collection and collaboration with Spencer Shaw of Leisure Craft.
This body of work is the artist’s painfully honest response to an amazing year and her realisation that the relationships we form with one another are the most important of our lives.
