Sarah Elise Abramson
Former AGCC Studio Artist
b. 1986, Torrance, CA
Lives and Works in San Pedro, CA
Sarah Elise Abramson resides at the intersection of poetic and unsettling, creepy and beautiful, subversive and classically Romantic. Her work is ethereal, demonstrating an inquisitive and appreciative love for nature, eccentric characters, and discarded objects that serve as windows into dreamlike visions of other people’s lives. Abramson often assigns meaning to the alchemical productions of the human psyche through the mode of photography, offering us a view into a normally intangible and magical realm that tends to get lost in our mundane affairs.
Young and passionately productive, Abramson writes a monthly column piece for American Art Collector magazine as well as Culture magazine. She has curated numerous shows in Los Angeles while studying her craft as a photographer under the likes of Susan Worsham, Taso Papadakis, and David LaChapelle. She continues to study under and work with LaChapelle with exciting future collaborations in the works. After a three year residency at the Angel Gates Cultural center, her accomplishments have been featured in numerous publications including the Huffington Post, Monster Children, Beautiful Bizarre magazine, Coachella magazine, and The Photographic Journal, and has exhibited at The Louvre, SOMArts, The Vex, The Egan Gallery, Gregorio Escalante Gallery, BG Gallery, The Arsenal of Venice in Italy, Jamie Brooks Gallery, and The Eventi Hotel Big Screen Plaza in New York City, to name a few. She is additionally the creator and editor-in-chief of Slow Toast, an annual independent art publication.
