Artist Statement

Storytelling, myths, and religious iconography show us the possibilities of change, alchemical transmutations from the mundane life we lead. Through traditional imagery, text materials, and painting methodology, my work invites a questioning of the ideal. Paintings that hint at the seduction of beauty, jewels, and brocades cocoon then bind us into a misplaced serenity.

About the Artist

Full-time painter Pam Hawkes was born in Birmingham, England, and still lives in the Midlands. She received her bachelor’s degree in fine art from Coventry University/Solihull College and her master’s in fine art from the University of Central England.

Hawkes was given a solo exhibition in September 2013 at Celia Lendis Gallery, Moreton in the Marsh, England.

    I like these very much–there’s a bit of the Golden Book of Fairytales to it, which I enjoyed in my childhood. It was illustrated by Adrienne Segur
