More About Pamela Rys

Question IconWhat inspires you?

My paintings are grounded in an admiration of the vastness of the cosmos and also the interest in pranic healing energies.

Question IconDescribe your creative process.

My paintings explore the balance between the magical, mystic and mysterious as well as their relationship to textures, light and colors. I often use color contrasts and diverse painting matter. During the painting process on the structured surface, apart from traditional paint colors I also use contemporary and more futuristic pigments. Iridescent colors, glitter, which supplement the cosmic design, and creates an “out of this world’’, perspective. Multiplications of structures in abstract form, give me the grounds to bring out spatiality and luminescence on a somewhat flat canvas.

Question IconWho are some artists that have influenced your work?

Surely, sculpture and relief strongly affect my artworks. My densely textured paintings are built up from a mixture of many layers of thick gesso, paint, wood, sand, plastic and other materials. It creates unique three-dimensional artworks. Frank Bowling’s technique is based on incorporation similar non-classical art materials into the artwork. The technique of impasto, a signature of Vincent Van Gogh’s paintings, is also close to my heart. Jean Dubuffet and art informal with its highly gestural technique, exert influence over my paintings. These are only some of the many art forms that I enjoy and explore.
