There are layers of collaboration in “7 Warrior Women,” Kristi Abbott’s latest collection of work. For the project, the Australian-born collage artist sought out six models, each representing a different continent. She brought in local mural creator Yuya Negishi to create backdrops for each image, and tattoo artist Sarah Epperson painted designs onto some of the models. From there, Abbott merged photography with maps, textures, and other elements to create the final works, which are fiercely feminine and global.
