Statement:

PAM DOUGLAS

Los Angeles artist Pam Douglas has been well reviewed in shows including a large installation in the California African American Museum and at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Art critic Shana Nys Dambrot reviewed her 2017 solo show in the Huffington Post: “Pam Douglas is steeped in the magical way assemblage creates meaning. But she also excels at using paint, light, and line to modify and repurpose her finds into thematic compositional elements of powerful abstract narratives.” In a Huffington Post review of her 2016 solo, Dambrot wrote: “Pam Douglas has an alchemical gift for transmogrifying materials beyond their conventional aspects in the service of emotionally rich, conceptually profound mixed media works that bridge the divide between gestural abstraction and allegorical narrative.” Douglas’ work has been critically acclaimed by Scarlet Cheng, contributor to the Los Angeles Times: “Pam Douglas adeptly combines drawing, painting and assemblage. …Her work so often expresses the universal polarities that define human existence. This cycle is joyful and sublime.”
