  • Artist Statement
Storytelling, myths, and religious iconography show us the possibilities of change, alchemical transmutations from the mundane life we lead. Through traditional imagery, text materials, and painting methodology, my work invites a questioning of the ideal. Paintings that hint at the seduction of beauty, jewels, and brocades cocoon then bind us into a misplaced serenity.

  • 1997 - Thesis Prize, Association of Art Historians, Coutauld Institute;
  • 1997 - Leicester Open Prize winner;
  • 2005 - RBSA Open Prize winner.

Pam Hawkes, ritrattista Britannica, vive e lavora a Midlands ed ha un Master presso la University of Central England. Ha tenuto conferenze di arte e disegno presso scuole ed università di tutta la regione.
A prima vista i suoi dipinti ricordano le icone religiose dell'epoca bizantina, con i loro colori dorati, con i soggetti rappresentati classicamente e disposti in inquadrature inusuali.
Il soggetto delle sue opere sono giovani donne misteriose e mistiche.
"Racconti, miti e l'iconografia religiosa ci mostrano le possibilità di cambiamento, trasmutazioni alchemiche della vita mondana... Attraverso immagini tradizionali, materiali di testo e metodologia di pittura il mio lavoro invita ad una messa in discussione dell'ideale".
