Pamela Mooney

When painting Pamela Mooney is always looking for ways to simplify. She starts with photographs found online or photographs from family albums. She likes to use saturated colors for dark values, different hues of the same color, and colors that don’t belong. In all of this it is usually the unplanned marks that generate new approaches which leads her to paint a new version of the painting which also influences the work and pushes it in a new direction. During the pandemic she took to painting flowers and using a brighter palette. This painting she had finished awhile ago, but then she took it out and changed the dark background to bright blue.
