I believe that a work of art must stand or fall on it’s own strength. Regardless of whether the art is representational or abstract, it must connect and engage the viewer on some level.
To write about one’s art is, perhaps, the most difficult thing an artist may do. How does one verbalize what is ostensibly a non-verbal process? Yet writing or discussing one’s art is as much a part of the process as working in the studio.
American abstract painter Pamela Stockamore lives and maintains a studio in Litchfield, Connecticut. She received an MFA in Painting from Pratt Institute, with minor concentrations in both Printmaking and Art History. Stockamore was the recipient of several Pratt Studio Scholar Fellowships.
Pamela Stockamore is internationally recognized for her unique approach to painting. She has employed the same process and format as the common ground and point of departure in her work for decades. Within an abstract and minimalist aesthetic, her process incorporates time honored methods of combining raw mineral and earth pigments with proprietary binders. The square format provides a platform of visual stability that underscores the subtle and expressive range of her materials. As Stockamore says of her work: “One does not see a literal translation of chosen subjects, but instead encounters the sense memory of colors, materials, surfaces, textures, and the effects of time and light on the natural and man-made environments.”
Pamela Stockamore’s paintings have been included in numerous one-person and group exhibitions in galleries and museums both nationally and internationally. Her works are in a number of collections throughout the United States, Europe, and Japan.
Ms. Stockamore is also included in the book, Innocent Eye, A Passionate Look at Contemporary Art, written by art critic Patricia Rosoff.
