Abi Kremer

Abi Kremer has had a distinguished career exhibiting locally and nationally for over 30 years. Her work is in public collections including Russell-Cotes Art Gallery and Museum and RNLI. Commissioned work has included a glass plaque for the Queen’s Golden Jubilee in the main Bournemouth library and site-specific work for the Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch hospitals.

A recently published book Abi Kremer Colour and Inspiration: Paintings 1979 – 2009 has essays by leading figures in the art world.

Peter Davies, author and art historian, has written:

“The paintings of Abi Kremer celebrate growth, movement and light. They are executed with thin, dilute but vivid solutions of pale, pastel-like oil colour and possess the airy transparency and diaphanous subtlety of a watercolourist. While landscape is a source of inspiration and even an oblique frame of reference, she does not generally approach landscape using the topographical references of the traditional watercolourist. Rather Kremer pursues a modernist vein of nature inspired abstraction in which intuitive colour, gestural mark making and a vital creative tension between surface and depth creates compelling analogies with nature.”

The book is currently on sale in Southampton City Art Gallery, Poole Museum and TheARThouse Gallery.
