VoyageATL Interview - December 2018
“Too few artists understand the language of business and how to make a living with their work. I’m interested in using my multifaceted perspective to spark a deeper dialogue between these respective communities… When I was studying at Savannah College of Art and Design, a lovely woman told me that if I was going to make it in the art world I had to be everywhere and be somebody that everybody wants to know. This is the role “luck” has played in my life and in my career: the networking hustle. If you want something and you’re passionate about it and you do the work – good things will happen in your favor.”

ArtsATL Review - May 2017
"Senescence Revisited by Abby Bullard is fleshy yet ethereal. Giving it some time to let unfold the tiny details like delicately frayed edges and tiny copper wire stitches. The pale and wrinkled sheets of framed paper are infused with subtle washes of color, the green and lavender of veins and bruises. Like pinned insect shadowboxes, there is a bit of death and morbid curiosity in these monoprints, like pale flakes of skin carefully preserved and arranged. The work evokes Eva Hesse's latex and rubber works as they look now, yellowing, aging and losing something."
