Erskine B. Wood Hall
Tania Abramson, a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, is on an international lecture tour speaking out on behalf of victims by bringing attention to the life-long effects of child sexual abuse. Ms. Abramson’s art explores issues of shame and self-worth as she extracts meaning from the events in her life. From self-portraits to conceptual projects utilizing commonplace items (e.g. sledgehammers and vintage telephones), to repetitive portrayals of the Abyss, her work depicts how severe trauma informed her worldview.
