Pam Glick lives and works in Buffalo New York.
Pam Glick’s most recent works are made with water based enamel and acrylic.
These abstract works can be understood as psychologically charged landscapes. In her work Glick often often returns to or perhaps more accurately departs from, a schematic image of Niagara Falls- a recurring visual metaphor for both the inevitability of change and the potential for renewal-which she subsequently abstracts and deconstructs, creating in turn visceral, complex and labyrinthine paintings that suggest a form of psychological and emotional mapping. Glick’s gestural mark making is often calligraphic; fragmentary language, from a wide range of sources, manifests in the work, establishing a kind of visual ‘patois’ , a lyrical aesthetic-narrative form, at once legible and illegible.
