About Pamela Enz
Traveling the globe Ms. Enz exhibited her paintings in Corfu, Paris and Tel-Aviv as well as stateside at Hofstra University, East Hampton, North Shore Arts and NOW in NYC.
Most recently she began to experiment with digital photos which are represented by the work here for sale.
She has learned to control and manipulate its imagery, finding an expansive new medium with which to draw and play with the miracle of light, shape, distance and change.
Strolling the waterways and plazas alongside and under bridges of her favorite Brooklyn neighborhoods, Gowanus, Dumbo and Red Hook, she has been recording the ever evolving cityscape, its transient space and architecture whose transformation is a day to day event founded on the cycle of construction and deconstruction.
These images of urban life will be the foundation for her upcoming solo show
“On a Clear Day you can See Gowanus” at the Con Edison Gallery in Dumbo during the month of November 2011
Most recently “ Son of a nobody “ a series of her collage was presented at chashama207 on 42nd St NYC . She has also exhibited at A.I. R. Gallery in Dumbo, Ashawagh Hall in East Hampton, Tin Garage in Tarrytown, Art Gotham and Emergency Arts (named Best Art Collective in NYC by the Village Voice) .
â€ś Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There's a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in. "
I create multi media work with my body, ink, oil, and photos, a lifetime torn and layered into text, my own, or the gift of random lines that continue to haunt and inspire.
Striving towards an insight into space and being that doesnâ€™t line up with the shorthand of everyday vision I aspire to zoom past the representational into the realm of poetic realism.
Two Japanese aesthetic principles guide me. Wabi Sabi come to intuitively as I have always found beauty in imperfection. And Clinamen realized in the doing over time as I discovered how to deliberately break a stylistic rule to enhance the beauty of an otherwise â€śperfectâ€ť whole .
