About the Artist
Pamela is an artist and printmaker living and working in Islington, London. Her current inspiration is drawn from the city, represented by London, Venice, Marrakesh and Naples. She is influenced by the myriad richness of colours, contrasts of light, atmospheres and architecture, from Georgian to Post Modern, and metropolitan cultures.
Pamela’s recent prints contain interwoven themes: figurative silhouettes which enact a narrative within the urban landscape capturing transient moments of fragmentary images and ambiguity of perspective, as seen in shop window reflections. Pamela’s work traces the architectural fabric and lay-lines connecting past to present, from church spire to glass citadel.
Her approaches include investigating the relationship between mono and photo-silkscreen printed and painted shapes; the layering of pixelated and textural surfaces and contrasting vibrant colour hues with aged patinas. Artists who have influenced Pamela include Rauchenberg, Warhol and Mara. Theoretical and cultural influenced include Boorstin, Fischer, Scharf and Finch.
Pamela studied painting and Printmaking at Portsmouth University, where she obtained a BA (Hons) degree in Fine Arts. After receiving a Post Graduate degree from the Institute Of Education, London University, she ran art departments and lectured in multi media art activities to a wide range of ages. Recently, Pamela has participated in advanced painting and mixed media courses at Central Saint Martins. She is a member of the Charing Cross Art Group and East London Printmakers.
