Lala Abaddon combines traditional practices of weaving, photography, and painting into her brilliantly colored woven prints. When we first featured her work, Abaddon took us behind the scenes into her New York studio, where she works quietly alongside her parakeet Poquito, and showed us how she uses a stationary rail cutter to make the compositions of her largescale weaves out of her own photographs, images inspired by complex backstories. Take a look at her newer works after the jump!
Emerging NYC-based artist Lala Abaddon's journey through the art world started with analog photography and poetry. The idea of creating works that carry more than one story always fascinated her, and Abaddon felt like she found the answer when she wove her first piece. Interested in the process of deconstruction and reconstruction, she decided to cut up multiple existing photographs and weave them into new images.
