Pam Glew – A Mirror Distorted

August 6, 2009

Pam Glew is putting in an appearance in Hollywood this month in a group show at the Carmichael Gallery along with Andrea Michaelsson, Candice Tripp and Cherri Wood, details and information below.

Exhibition Dates: August 6 – August 27 2009

Address: Carmichael Gallery / 1257 N. La Brea Ave / West Hollywood CA 90038

Carmichael Gallery invites you to attend A Mirror Distorted, an all-female international group show featuring new works on canvas, paper and mixed media fabric by artists Andrea Michaelsson, Candice Tripp, Cherri Wood and Pam Glew.

A complete show preview can now be seen here.

Please contact art@carmichaelgallery.com to enquire about available work.

Afghan

Afghan Girl (above) is from the new ‘Culture Clash’ series, using eclectic found imagery as a starting point, which is both compelling and yet has some element of vulnerability. The emphasis on the new works is to use found imagery from diverse sources; children in horror films (Daydreamer & Wonder), contemporary images of models and icons (Saint & Candy-pop Antichrist) and children in war-torn states (Afghan Girl).

The paradox of the imagery is explored in the fabric flags I use. Constructing handmade flags, making a hybrid of British/ American/ Iraqi/ Palestinian flags, to create a new emblem is partly a comment on the current international climate.

Candy

Candy Pop Antichrist (above) is loosely based on Lily Allen, I chose her because of her ‘bad-girl done good’ attitude. Its called ‘Antichrist’ because of the inverted union jack has been turned into an upside-down cross whilst still being recognisable as a British flag.

saint

Saint (above) is based on the model Lily Cole, the one with the angel face and a saintly look about her, (I can’t help thinking that the Pre-raphealites would have loved Lily Cole, shes like a modern day Elizabeth Siddal). The ‘idol’ is given a halo of light, a gentle nod to the way we celebrate beauty above many other attributes.

 The original flags were made from American flags, turned into Union Jacks with many pairs of denim ieans with the rivets and pockets still visible. The images are painted with bleach freehand with a sponge, to make these new deconstructed cameo portraits.
