Joshua Abarbanel

Artist Statement

Joshua Abarbanel is engaged in an on-going examination of creation and the passage of time, regularly using forms and patterns evocative of biological, botanical, geological, and mechanical structures. Finding inspiration in fractals, accretive formations, and the Fibonacci sequence, Abarbanel often creates art that simultaneously evokes microscopic and aerial perspectives. These compositions serve as metaphors for archetypal relationships between people, between individuals and communities, and between humankind and the planet, and also illustrate how disparate parts can come together to make a whole in beautiful and startling ways. 

The Jewish Museum Berlin commissioned him to create a large-scale sculpture for their fall 2016 exhibition, Golemnew body of work—comprised of sculpture, photographs, and video—is inspired by his 2015 shipboard residency in the Arctic Circle.
