Historical Context:
In the series "Pure Reality," Abigail Spencer wanted to create an in-depth study of personal objects. On her work she reflects, "each object is familiar, providing a sense of comfort. The objects are suspended in a black atmosphere, creating a moment of quiet and understanding. Saturated colors and thick paint applications entice the viewer and emphasize the character of each object."
