In her intimately scaled abstract paintings, artist Elyce Abrams constructs personal histories by recording significant experiences and memories from her life. Abrams’ use of texture and brushstrokes is technically complex as she metaphorically frames abstracted memories to derive a new landscape. In addition, Abrams’ use of color, lights, and patterning creates a dialogue that intrigues the viewer and encourages them to question on many levels what they are really looking at.
Born in South Africa, Abrams received her BFA from School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and her MFA from the University of the Arts: Philadelphia in 2004, and was then awarded an Artist's Grant to the Vermont Studio Center in 2005. Currently living and working in Pennsylvania, she has shown frequently in its city galleries in both solo and group exhibitions, as well as from New York City to Delaware to Ohio since 1999.
