These pieces speak to the fraying of our lives as we have known them to be.  But they also speak of possibility too, and diversity, the richness of poetic reassembly.
Pamela Drix, Artist

‘In my studio practice, I am informed by ineffable ideas – Language (and related text, voice, sound), History, Memory. What I want to do with the work is impossible; I want mute objects to speak. The process itself becomes a way to visualize this unattainable goal and therefore is the way the practice propels itself – so that the subsequent projects attempt to complete the previous ones. With the Dispel, Dissipate Series, Cris de Coeur and Making Joy series, I am interested in making manifest what I see as my interior life. The drawings made of color pencil on paper, are about things disappearing, about things ending. The paradox of making and negating occurs at the same time. They reference objects whose mass and weight are suggested, somehow adhering to the force of gravity. Yet they seem to be made of some kind of thread, intensely woven, spun around themselves. The drawings are unravelling, dissipating, dispelling themselves.’
