A couple of years ago, I discovered Pamela Gough through a Weekend Notes article. I have a 'thing' about houses and her art work seemed to have lots and they were Brisbane houses so of course I went along.
I fell in love with her work and spent hours at the Gallery chatting to her and just looking. Her paintings are filled with light and texture and if you look closely, you'll see clever additions like maps and house plans.
"Beneath what we can see, are the dreams and plans of those who have gone before us, those who lived and loved and built up the environment that we are gifted with today
." says Pamela.
I went back again the next day wanting to buy something. The originals were huge so even if I could have spared the money, I'd have had nowhere to hang them. So I decided to get a Giclee print on canvas. Simple eh? NO. I think I took an hour and a half to decide. I wanted everything. Eventually I decided on a single house that reminded me of my Grandparent's home.
That beautiful house sits on the wall at the end of my bed and I enjoy it every day. Somehow I wouldn't be surprised if my Grandma was added to it on the back step one day.
Winner and finalist of a number of prizes and regular exhibitor in Brisbane, Pamela Gough had also written and illustrated the book "My Brisbane". She is a talented artist whose work will certainly intrigue. Check out her website for current exhibitions.
I am looking forward to her next solo exhibition "The Way Back Home" in October at Graydon Gallery.
