Collage of shapes created from the abstract expressionist works of Ruth Abrams (1912- 1986), who devoted an impressive body of work to such problems as visual perspective and the technique of action painting in relation to cosmic space. Her outer-space paintings include ''There Are Unknown Elements in the Universe as Old as Mankind.''

Filmmaker, painter, and teacher Ruth Abrams was a painter of the New York School. As early as the 1940s she exhibited at the American Contemporary Art Gallery along with Hans Hofmann, Rice Pererira and Giorgio Cavallon and remained closely associated with Abstract Expressionists.
