Pamela M Anderson

Artist Statement

My artwork is the most intimate conversation that I share with the world, creating a visual poem that allows me to connect in an intellectual experience common to us all. I document the simplest and rawest of moments in a permanent way.

Whether painting or creating sculpture, form and color excite me. I relate to the physical feel of the materials and ideas manifest in playful ways much like the moments I remember creating as a child. Recognizing at an early age that art was a language that allowed me to communicate in a meaningful way.
I use mops, brushes, and a variety of taping knives and scraping tools to make marks on canvas, paper and sculpture. My process is fluid, guided by intuition, which is presented by the honesty of the materials within layers of paint.
The scale of my work and the boldness in mark making aid in a self-expression that empowers me. I am working to invent a signature that expands on the foundation of abstraction.  It is a space where I explore voice: I am a soft-spoken, Midwestern woman on the outside, but when I am creating, I amplify my influence.

I enjoy working on commissioned pieces that enhance residential and commercial spaces. Inspired by place, working with you to complete your vision.
