About the work:
Paméla makes abstract geometric paintings and collages like assemblages.
Like many Dutch painters before her, the beauty of the Dutch landscape is an important source of inspiration. And in that tradition she examines the relationship between (the Dutch) landscape and abstraction in her own 'handwriting'.
“my eye is caught by details in the (urban) landscape, whereby color and light on the skin of things is characteristic of my translation of reality. Colour and more specifically colour shades, play an essential role in this process. Something I intuitively but especially investigative use, whereby compositional structure takes place in the contrived tension between geometric constructed surfaces and intuitive forms created."
The yarn picks up details, directs the eye and the seemingly flat surface hereby becomes a reliëf with multiple dimensions.”
