    Abner is a story-teller and his work is rooted in personal aspirations to give one hope in a situation that seems hopeless, to transfer the ability to laugh at sadness, and to seduce viewers into seeing beauty in bleak objects by offering compositions that play to emotion before aesthetics. With his research, sensitivity and awareness, he provides the simple and extremely complex facility to tell a story with visuals that can be felt before they are understood.
