Theresa Abel’s interest in theology and art history led her to stylistically reference medieval painting. Her most recent work combines oil painting and silverpoint drawing to create works that seem ancient and contemporary. Some pieces pose a critique of contemporary Christianity, and others simply work on composition and portraiture. Abel’s elaborate patterns mesmerize the viewer and blur the line between modernism and medieval, forcing human models to become unimpassioned pattern.
