The ninth annual Boxed In/Break Out features the unique sculptures of Abby Edwards, whose work explores the human experience through absurdity, humor, and child-like curiosity. Her installation Dirt and Stardust examines the relationship between humankind’s inner worlds and the outer cosmos through bold and colorful compositions.

Dr. Katie Geha, Director of the Dodd Galleries at the University of Georgia, selected Edwards’ proposal, noting: “Abby Edwards proposal for Boxed In/Break Out was accomplished and realized. Her works have a playful approach to the unknown, UFOs, and the awe that accompanies the exploration of the unknown. Her sculptures, exaggerated in form and color, display an absurdist examination of our inner and outer galaxies. Her work will read particularly well from the street and inspire joy in the casual passer-by.” Recognizing that the unknown can be an unsettling topic, Edwards ultimately invites curiosity, inspiring viewers to ask questions, and reignite their imaginations.
