Pamela Maria

Paméla Maria lives and works in Amsterdam. She makes collages and reliefs with different materials and techniques such as photography, paint and yarn.

As for many Dutch painters throughout the centuries, the beauty of the Dutch landscape is an important source of inspiration for her. Zooming in on the endless wealth of patterns, structures, color shades and light, she captures details in the (urban) landscape with her camera. She questions the meaning of those intimate moments, by cutting up, painting over, and wrapping the image. The almost obsessive repetition of shapes and patterns, radiates a meditative quality in her compositions. She ‘interweaves’ her impressions and translates them with bright colors and a detailed texture into layered images that meander between abstract and realistic. “Nothing is what it seems!”
