Abid was on an important panel discussion, organised by Collectors of Wood Art at SOFA Chicago, 2016, to discuss contemporary works that push the boundaries of the material, mine its properties for inspiration, and in so doing, expose the eternal qualities of wood that perpetuate dialogues between makers and material.
