Cathy Abramson

Cathy Abramson’s painterly images examine and capture the ordinary moments, chance encounters and fragments of urban life that repeat daily. Even though these moments seem unimportant, together they underscore the transient nature of our experience in an urban environment — an environment of constant change. Capturing those moments highlights the joys and frustrations of the urban rhythm and underscore the vitality of contemporary life. Influenced by the neighborhoods of Kennedy Street, NW, DC, Bethesda, Maryland and elsewhere, the artist reflects and invents scenes that are at once about history, change, nostalgia and social struggle.
