Abigail Fallis (b.1968, London) studied silversmithing and metalwork at Camberwell College of Arts (1996-99). The making process is crucial to Fallis’ practice and she experiments with diverse, often recycled, materials including papier mâché, everyday objects, fish skeletons, neon and bronze. Fallis refers to her sculptures as ‘thinking tools’ and her work combines searching questions – about contemporary life, the environment and our consumerism – with her sense of humour.
Fallis has exhibited widely throughout the UK and her work can be found in a number of public and private collections including Hix restaurants and Damien Hirst’s Murderme collection. In 2016 Fallis became a member of the Royal Society of Sculptors. She lives and works in Gloucestershire.
