Evoke Contemporary - Pamela Wilson

EVOCATIVE
&
DARKLY  PLAYFUL

Photos by C. Whitney-Ward

I'm an EVOKE junkie. Whenever they have a new show, they change their window to showcase the artist's work. And I'm always walking by and taking a photo through the window.


This week's painting  -  a forlorn Victorian lass sitting on a railroad track holding an empty birdcage.


How could I resist? I stepped inside the gallery.






Figurative painter, Pamela Wilson's works of art are provocative and compelling. Her subjects are dark and singular and haunting.  Pamela on the other hand looks like a California gal who wouldn't dream of putting a stuffed bird on her head,  draping dead fur around her neck, or toting a rifle - the stuff of her otherworldly paintings.


Pamela's a collector of wildly-wonderful stuff and says that if she weren't an artist she'd probably open an antique shop. And, before putting paint to canvas, she finds the perfect model,
dresses her with a melange of great finds, and does a photo shoot capturing the mood. Then she begins to paint.
