With all the modern mechanical aids, with the cinema, with film, and everything else, how are you going to trap reality, trap appearance without making an illustration of it? The painter has to be more inventive....... He has to reinvent Realism.
      Francis Bacon, 1985

California Landscapes

Always drawn to the ever changing shadow and shape of the undulating hills of California, Pamela strives to reinterpret the actual into the sublime. As seasons change and light imposes, Pamela reacts to the color shift and intensity. Whether it be vineyards, mountains or plains, Pamela embraces the raw subject matter and manipulates the organic material to the next level, creating composition after composition of intriguing and provocative work.

Hawaii

 Having grown up in the beautiful islands of Hawaii, Pamela will always be a "local girl'. Her initial introduction to the art world occurred when she was a student at Punahoe Schools in Honolulu. There her talent was recognized early by exceptional teachers. Pamela continues to visit her beloved Hawaii 3-4 times a year, painting the exquisite landscapes, flora and fauna that only Hawaii can offer.

Commercial and Public Art

Always striving for growth, Pamela has entered the public arena in a big way. She has secured several public art projects in both the public and private sector. Most importantly , she has enjoyed the process that accompanies the competitive format. Her years in business has provided her with many resources to be a viable candidate for many opportunities.

About Us

Pamela AndersonAbout the Artist:

Pamela Anderson has a concentrated background in a variety of mediums. As a graduate of University of California at Davis, she was privileged to study under some of the greatest artists of our time. These artists included Wayne Thiebaud, Robert Arneson and Roy Deforest. During the 70’s, there was a movement known as “California Funk”. This philosophy allowed the student a great deal of exploration and experimentation. Pamela’s work reflects this genre through her journey as a contemporary realist. Pamela paints in plein aire and in her studio. Both venues afford different but necessary opportunities to develop a successful painting. Outdoors, she is initially drawn to the emotion and playfulness generated by color, shape and shadow. Her rough sketches are initiated on location and then completed in the studio.
 
Currently Pamela specializes in large scale landscapes for both the private and the public sector. For the most part these landscapes are done on canvas or masonite in oil pastel, acrylic or both. Color is her most valuable tool. She is constantly wheeling color’s magic into each composition to create an emotional patchwork of beauty. It is Pamela’s philosophy that her work should engage the viewer, incite emotion, stimulate thought and promote dialogue.
