Abby Neale

Abby Neale is an artist, collaborator and educator with an interest in science fiction, urban landscapes and wandering around cities. Born in New Haven, she sought creative inspiration through both an obsession with contemporary art, an appetite for books and a desire to travel the world. Through her travels, she learned art exists beyond the white walls of a gallery and can become a tool for learning and finding a voice in big, public conversations.

"I hope to provide people with unanswered questions and windows into worlds of possibility. When making work, I consider with how people interact and experience my work, operating in a space bridging art and daily life."
