Abrams’ work explores the relationships between ecosystems and human culture. Most recently this includes finding symmetry in the various life forms found amongst coral reefs in parallel to that of the urban landscape. Using colorful encaustic in ribbon-like forms, her work brings to mind vibrant coral reefs and seabed topography. During her residency, Abrams will develop her encaustic works into free-standing sculpture installations. She will also present a public talk that highlights the need for reef preservation and its delicate ecosystem. Since her first exhibition in 2006, Abrams’ prize-winning works have been exhibited in national invitations including Encaustic Works ’07 and featured in Encaustic and Beyond, published in 2010.
