Pam is a mixed media and digital collage artist, working in abstraction with an emphasis on exploring textural, kinetic, natural and architectural forms. Working intuitively with color, materials, woven lines and patterns, compositions are layered, exploring the challenges and mysteries of movement, both flowing and frenetic. Her iterative process of collage—digitally morphing or physically tearing fibrous papers to construct, deconstruct, and reconstruct—is emblematic of motion. This process provides a container for her active nature and reveals itself in the dense textures of her art.
Pam’s fascination with movement developed as a child growing up in Los Angeles, where she witnessed the canyon byways morph into a maze of freeways. Her early visual memories are littered with a tangle of ramps and interchanges. Later, across America and overseas, she repeatedly witnessed the dynamic effects of growth and destruction in the natural world. These appear thematically in her work. The textural netting imagery, a recurring motif, represents an unconscious desire for security, a safety net or a way of capturing and harnessing energy. While her practice is fueled by movement, she seeks balance in the spaces created between her densely drawn lines, offering conceptual and visual resting points.
