Pamela Carr: Simply Serene
Imperial Theatre — March 18 to May 27, 2013
Imperial Theatre Exhibition Committee (ITEC) presents a wonderful collection of mixed-media works by Pamela Carr of St. Martins, NB.
Titled Simply Serene, this exhibition is inspired by the simplistic natural beauty that emanates from the forest that surrounds the Bay of Fundy. A collection that reflects Pamela Carr’s vision of abstract art with a strong organic influence, she finds inspiration in the nature that surrounds her and incorporates organic substances in her creations to understand nature on a more personal scale. Set in mixtures of stone and sand, harvested natural elements are given an extended, indefinite life — acorns are transformed into blooming flowers, moss is turned into textured abstract paintings — to create unique, vibrant pieces of art.
Born in St. Stephen and raised in Petitcodiac, Pamela Carr now calls St. Martins, N.B. home.
She became interested in art at a young age, but found that there were few avenues for a budding artist in her small town and had little choice but to teach herself. Always a part of who she is, art was always a difficult avenue to pursue after graduating high school. Over the years, she has balanced work and art in an effort to fulfill her dream, making sure that painting always came first.
Often sought out by individuals and businesses, Pamela Carr has sold dozens of large pieces enabling her to pursue her artistic endeavours full time. During the last year, new surroundings have influenced the majority of the works created over the last year. An observant person who enjoys looking beyond the mundane of everyday objects, she often finds herself lost in the calm that comes over her when she paints.
