About Amory


Amory Abbott is an artist who lives and works in Vancouver, BC, Canada. He earned a BFA in Illustration from Indiana University and ab MFA in Visual Studies from the Pacific Northwest College of Art.

Amory explains the work by saying, “Through solemn and immense environments, I attempt to re-envision Romantic sublime landscape art by exploring the conceptually “dark” commonalities between charcoal, post-human ecology, and chthonic themes. To me, the deep, mysterious corners of the world are places imbued with wonder, isolation, and ancient magic; remote, mountainous places on the brink of transformation, this time perhaps broken open by our own consequence. To that end, my works attempt a foreshadowing of collapse – ecological, extinctive, or fantastical – that requires imagination and action, curiosity and alchemy, and a necessary grieving process for the end of life as we know it. By venturing into my unknown and cataclysmic worlds, I hope viewers might experience mortality, fear, wonder, magic, and at last, appreciation for a planet healing itself.”
