My collage of shapes cut from the abstract expressionist works of Ruth Abrams.
Ruth Abrams (1912-1986) 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 Contemp-orary Art Gallery along with Hans Hofmann, Rice Pererira and Giorgio Cavallon and remained closely associated with Abstract Expressionists.
