Chrissie Abbott Zine

December 22, 2008

As well as purchasing Hannah Waldron’s Zine, i also got myself Chrissie Abbots. ‘In My Mind Im Clapping’ is an edition of a collection of some of her illustrations. Her work is largely collage and illustration, she sources from the kitsch lifestyle of others, usually using geometric constructions woven with images humorous scenes of people or animals. In all its diversity her work is that of nostalgia and reform as she connects with the contemporary and discarded imagery of life of other people. Her work is extremly inspiring for me, as i have always loved this type of work where nostalgia is involved, and recapturing ones childhood (i have all my WWF wrestlers lined up on my mantle-piece in my living room at university!) I think its the mid 80’s babies that were left in a kind of limbo by where they were to young to appreciate the terrible fashion but to old to grasp it when it came back round.
