About Pamela McMahon

 
 
  • Biography
    I have two ways of working.  I paint beautiful places, and I create colorful and textured semi abstract landscapes.

    When painting, my main obsession is trees, followed by large expanses of water and then fields and flowers.  I particularly love scenes with deep shadows and bright lights that allow me to pack a painting with color.   I use my own photographs as the 'jumping off' point and I use color to convey the mood or atmosphere of the scene - cold, heat, loneliness or simply the beauty of nature itself.   

    My mixed media collage work is colorful and expressive.  A work begins with random marks made with a variety of media on papers that are ripped to pieces and then assembled on a canvas to create the basis of a composition.  The challenge is then for me to accentuate and add detail to create depth and mood.  Pure color and metallic paints and inks feature in most of my collage works.
