Pamela Becker’s art depicts timeless moments of practical contact with one’s own true nature, while encouraging an encompassing perspective of humanity as one shared environment. It symbolizes how our dream-world reflects back to us information worth paying attention to. Information that has the potential to seed a new vision for a positive future.
The process and symbolism of Pamela’s paintings has more than once produced precognitive understanding that has proven insightful. “Painting becomes a meditation, a conversation with the unknown, and I have learned to trust it,” the artist confirms.
“An often explored subject, ‘the myth of distance’ illustrates inter-connectedness that implies space is a myth. Color and light make me so excited I have to put paint down to reflect their beauty. Often my paintings begin with wooden boards covered with copper, patinas and other metallic pigments which add depth and begin a story, as I dive into unexpected patterns forming in the patina implying a direction,” Becker shares. Imagery emerges from the patina suggesting faces, objects, feelings or story. The artist enters into a conversation with the piece that may take days or years to complete.
“I have travelled to many parts of this amazing planet and have immersed myself in cultures I never knew existed. I am not gifted with learning spoken languages, but have found that by sketching people in my travels, I make connections with them. I strive to remind us of our best: essential beauty and wholeness. I believe its embodiment raises the level of thought and health while igniting the heart- thus making a positive difference in the “bigger vision”.
