THE FOX'S WEDDING:
Pamela Blotner Exhibits at Quicksilver
June 27—August 3, 2008
Pamela Blotner’s artwork has always been concerned with mythology and belief systems, and where they interconnect with human experience. The recent sculptures and drawings she has included in The Fox’s Wedding continue her ongoing artistic process: examining humankind’s relationship to nature, science, religion and calamity.
"I think of my mixed media sculptures and drawings as three-dimensional urban or folk stories, exploring the wisdom passed down from one generation to the next—textured by landscape, heritage, and belief—thereby helping to shape and maintain a culture, and ensure its continued survival," says Blotner.
Her primary materials—paper, wood, clay, and felted wool—bring a long and varied multicultural history to her art, enriching both form and content in her work.
Pamela Blotner teaches sculpture and drawing at the University of San Francisco, and is also a member of the faculty of Pixar University of Pixar Animation Studios. She has traveled and taught extensively overseas, and also worked as an Illustrator/Mission Specialist for Human Rights Watch and Physicians for Human Rights. Her work has been exhibited in Europe, Africa, and throughout the United States.
