ARTIST STATEMENT

PAMELA DOVE

The dichotomy of chaos and calm, pervasive and unsettling forces needing structure and limits, inform and direct my work. With my designs I seek to contain reverberating, sometimes jarring images within the confines of the page using color, texture and often mixed media. Whether literal or symbolic, these themes are reinforced through asymmetry, uneven shapes, strength of order and hand-mixed color. I work with various techniques and combinations of mono-printmaking, hand coloring and chine collé collage to achieve my vision.
