Onward by Abby Nowakowski

Abby Nowakowski is a Guelph-based interdisciplinary artist using labour, printmaking, illustration and installation to speak about the psychological process of thought suppression.

Abby’s practice taps into the human tendencies of failure and awkwardness, with one foot in the realm of happy go-lucky cartoons and another pulling from her experience with shame.

Along with her own practice Abby is the co-founder of Otherwise Studios with Ahmri Vandeborne, and her artistic practice extends into a range of collaborations including workshops, performances, and community weaving opportunities that put an emphasis on skill development and creating safe space.
