About Pam Carr

I love using colour and texture to evoke emotion, either with paints or mixed media or with fibre art.
I have been building a cob house for the past four years and this has been a living art project in itself.
In October 2017 I started working in my new art studio.
I am currently working with acrylics and predominantly abstract art, exploring colour, textures and layering. My inspiration comes from deeply seated emotions as well as nature, which always offers opportunities to express and mirror human emotion.
I recently discovered the joy of working with mini canvases as someone commissioned a 4”x4” piece last spring. I began with fluid art abstract pieces and then moved on to small expressive landscapes. I began experimenting with techniques for creating depth and texture within a small piece. Using brushes, palette knives, my fingers and some spattering, I play with colour and build up each piece as it takes on its own personality. Each small canvas seeks to convey a mood and employ colour and texture to express what nature can bring to us: peace, tranquility and harmony. Working on this small series has opened me up to the many different ways we see nature and our everyday world.
smaller pieces force me to concentrate my discipline, distill my skills
and thus intensify the work, as I have such a small space to
communicate the feeling and atmosphere of a specific scene. I would like
to expand and develop this series to have some landscapes showing the
power of nature, the storms and extremes nature can throw at us. I am
excited by this series and the opportunities for expression it provides.
As my art
practice is open and fluid, I discovered a medium that was as
spontaneous as I am. Fluid acrylics and also resin painting have
captured my imagination. The unpredictability and the need to trust the
process have led me down an exciting path of discovery.
and the medium work to generate these fluid art works. The colour
choices and the artists chosen process ensures that fluid art is created
in the moment.
