All of my work reflects my fascination with natural patterns and texture. I am interested in the natural cycles that are part of life. The subject matter is ordinary but transformed, isolated from its usual setting and viewed in the context of the universal forces of generation, growth and decay.

Susan Abrams is a photographer and papermaker. Through the use of liquid emulsion she melds the darkroom work with the craft of hand-papermaking. The complex interaction of her paper and photographs results in unique, textural prints which accentuate the organic nature of her work. Small differences such as the application or the thickness of the emulsion and the texture of the paper all affect the final print. She says, “A fascination with natural cycles, patterns and textures runs through my work and seeks to capture the beauty of a still point in life's chaos.” Abrams is a self-taught artist. Her work is represented in the collections of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Free Library of Philadelphia, McGraw-Hill, Merck & Co., and other private collections in the U.S., Canada, and Great Britain.
