Pamela Gibson is an abstract landscape painter living and working in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. She holds a BFA from Oregon College of Art and Craft in Portland, Oregon. After weaving for many years, she transitioned to encaustic painting 8 years ago, finding the medium more conducive to interpreting the land around her. Her textile sensibility continues to find its way into her work as a painter.
…..(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.
