Award-winning Los Angeles artist Pam Douglas has been well reviewed in solo and juried shows and in museum exhibits including a large installation in the California African American Museum and at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (S & R Gallery).
Art critic James Bae wrote: “These paintings are stunning … never repetitive but endlessly unpredictable… distinct and unfolding their own vigorous abstraction…” And in Art Ltd Magazine, reviewer Simone Kussatz wrote: “Images emerge, radiating a source of light that makes them feel alive.”
As a teenager in New York City, Pam saved her lunch money to go to the Museum of Modern Art, absorbing the abstract expressionists. Later, she studied art at Vassar College and Columbia University. But it wasn’t until she graduated that she found her inspiration in ancient Asian painting reflected through contemporary sensibilities. Since then, much of her work pays respect to Zen artists of the first millennium who believed in using their instincts more than their brush and for whom paintings were poetry.
Pam’s most recent exhibition, The Long Thread, is taking place at TAG Gallery at the Bergamot Station Art Center in Santa Monica, from September 2 – 27, 2014.
