Pamela J. Black is an abstract painter who works primarily with fluid acrylics and watercolors. She received her BFA in painting from Kutztown University and holds her Masters in Education, which she obtained while teaching elementary art for five years.
Black’s paintings are interpretations of what she sees around her and what she has discovered through sketches along her travels. She often begins by creating a random mark on canvas or paper and responds to it by bringing order back to the surface. Focus on process, change and exploration are essential to creating work that feels authentic and personal. Ultimately, her creative process is fueled by a need to find a sense of balance between chaos and control.
Through this dialogue that she creates, she continues to find connections to herself. Black’s paintings serve as reflections of her soul’s landscape – they are visual records of her emotions, findings, and her everyday thoughts. She chooses to explore these ideas through her relationship with the medium, while constantly expressing herself through the process of painting. Black’s hope is for the viewer to be brought into the present moment while engaging with her paintings and to be able to find their own story within the artwork.
