Pamela Hare

Statement

Pamela is an artist and printmaker living and working in Islington, London. Her current inspiration is drawn from ‘the City’, represented by London, Venice and Marrakesh. She is influenced by the myriad richness of colours, contrasts of light, atmospheres and architecture, from Georgian to Post Modern, and metropolitan cultures and histories.

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-screen printed and painted shapes; the layering of pixelated and textural surfaces and contrasting vibrant colour hues with aged patinas.

Artists that have influenced Pamela include Rauschenberg, Warhol and Mara. Theoretical and cultural influences include Boorstin, Fischer, Scharf and Finch.
