Pamela Cole About

Pam Cole seeks to spread delight through art. Her bold and colorful images are almost contagious triggering instinctive emotions while continually challenging the viewer to look beyond traditional symbols. Dedicated to self-expression, Cole uses innovative patterns to tell visual stories, synthesizing imagination and reality into semi-conceptual pieces that challenge both the eye and the mind. Influenced by twentieth-century titans Jackson Pollock and Jean-Michel Basquiat, Cole has nevertheless developed her own distinct brand of abstraction. From collage to paint, her serene yet chaotic body of work channels the highest highs and lowest lows of life. With the use of new techniques, Cole__™s most recent work, ___Season Series, Pure Series,___ showcases an even more exuberant liveliness that is sure to leave a lasting impression. Add Comment


Artist Statement:

Although my style goes against all traditional teachings, I have expressed my life__™s story with its highs and lows. Using various mediums, I cut glue, paint, on wood and canvas. By naming each piece I give it a life of it__™s own, hoping to evoke emotional conversation amongst my viewers.
