Pamela Gibson’s abstract encaustic landscape paintings come into being at the intersection of vision and the passage of time. Her work is informed by the Western landscape, especially the landscape near her home in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. She holds a BFA in Craft. Her many years of concentrating on the encaustic medium were proceeded by years as a textile artist.
…..(Pamela’s) textile legacy lives on. Her love of materiality informs every decision she makes in encaustic. The way textures interact, the way vertical and horizontal elements vie, the way different materials—burned shellac, graphite, ink, found objects—dialogue with each other. Her fascination with words as pattern. Her visceral, voluminous connection to expression.
