Abi Ogle is a fiber and installation artist who grew up in many of the Southern United States. She received her bachelor’s degree in 2D and 3D art from Covenant College (2018) and has attended artist residencies across the United States and France. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in several states.
Abi’s practice is rooted in the beliefs that materials matter, the influence of art history is in everything we see and do, and that art really can make you more human. Through using recognizable fiber mediums, such as discarded clothing, found objects, or human hair, her practice often transforms something familiar into something strange, giving it new meaning as well as new life. Her most recent body of work is focused on narratives of memory, grief, and loss. While at HCCC, she hopes to further explore the desire and repulsion narrative by creating installation work related to the human body that is initially beautiful in form but becomes increasingly grotesque as the viewer realizes the materials used.
