Inspired By: I am inspired by the figurative art of the Renaissance.
Pamela Mummy’s art is rooted in her love of the Renaissance. Her classical approach, with an emphasis on the beautiful, is expressed through several media- painting, drawing and sculpture. Her passion is figurative - rich earth tone paintings in oil, warm graphite drawings and powerful three dimensional work with clay.
While traveling in Italy, she focused her attention on the rich array of figurative art. It deeply influenced both her imagination and her technique. Her study of figurative work there had an enormous influence on her creativity. The Golden Rectangle, considered since the Renaissance as perfect visual balance, is often acknowledged in the classical linear perspective that is the foundation of her paintings. Hidden objects and words are secretly nested in her sculptures and paintings, reflecting her affection for intrigue.
Vases with Faces are also part of her repertoire. She throws lidded containers and creates expressive faces on each piece. These are sold in several galleries in Washington and Oregon.
As an artist, the process of transforming clay into a refined, polished piece of art is fascinating to her. The high contrast between the fired clay surface and the glazed armor and clothing reflects the honesty, beauty and reality of our world. The surfaces of the fired ceramic sculptures are often painted with oils to capture the depth of the pigments against the skin of her creations. Pamela Mummy’s appreciation for traditional beauty is reflected in the choices she makes for the subjects in her work
