Flight (Available at Calabar Gallery)
Watercolor, hand-made paper, encaustic, graphite & mixed media on paper
Pamella Allen 2017
A landscaped life, the self study and place remembered. It is Costa Rica and Kenya, it is the Ionian Sea and Epidaurus. Abstract elements mirror the representational in these mixed media collaged works on paper. The prose here is "taking flight from such great heights moving from shadow into light". Pamella Allen
The process begins as a series of memory sketch/ink drawings, prose infused paper works layered and collaged together. The mantra here is a meditation on peace and the regenerative cycles of nature.
