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.
