SYNTHESIS: A fine art exhibiton by Pamela Gibson
March 7 @ 12:30 pm - April 26 @ 6:00 pm
the combination of ideas to form a theory or system.”the synthesis of intellect and emotion in his work
In this body of work I continue my exploration of synthesis: bringing together many disparate elements to form a new whole. Marrying varied materials, ideas, images of the landscape around me, inspiration from writers, poets, musicians and artists, and thinking about the passage of time, is what motivates my endeavor.
My medium of choice is encaustic. Pigment is suspended in hot wax, and is applied in thin layers, each layer fused to the next with a torch. The torch becomes my brush. The encaustic process allows me to play with transparency, opacity, and is conducive to the addition of mixed materials. Look closely and you will find graphite, burned dress patterns, shellac, old shredded memories, ink and other elements in the work.
Each painting begins with a photo I have taken in the landscape. This image is only a cue. As I work, ideas begin to seep in. Often there is a particular piece of music or a poem that inspires me. I have no preconceived notion of how the painting will look when it is finished. As I work I have a back and forth with color, opacity, materials and content. It is like having a conversation. I work until I feel I have achieved synthesis.
