Dimensional Art: The “www.ArcheologicalArt.com” website was inspired by ancient cultures, lost civilizations and primitive art forms. The artist’s series on Australian aboriginal art is based on many archeological sites throughout Australia, such as the Snake Bay area on Melville Island; the country of the Ulurangkwila people and Croker Island by the Arafura Sea, which is home to the Gunwinggu clan. Other archeological sites include Oenpelli in Arnhem Land, Mt. Borradaile, Kakadu National Park, Groote Eylandt (a small island in the Gulf of Carpentaria) and the Kimberleys. In an effort to simulate their formation on rocks and caves, specialized texturing has come into play, creating a dimensional art—an art form you yearn to touch in order to appreciate. Much of her art incorporates earth tones—dirt pigments she has collected from sacred and revered places throughout the United States. These include Chimayo in New Mexico, Bell Rock in Colorado, and Sedona in Arizona. Many natural colors are also created with the use of teas, ground clays, spices, wild berries and nuts.
Themes and Sizes: Current art pieces range in size from 32”H x 19”W to 10”H x 9”W. These relate in subject matter to themes such as Wandjina figures (a complex mythology associated with the coming of the wet season), ancestral beings and spirit people, X-ray art, early-and late period “Mimi” figures, Bradshaws, various indigenous animals, and Yam-People. There is much research involved with each piece. Accordingly, a detailed essay explaining the significance of the artwork accompanies each. Pam has a consummate interest in the dichotomies that exist between the past and the present, the dream and the real, the here and the past. Her images are suspended in a timeless reverie that becomes a part of history, and a way of saving long-forgotten sacred things that have their origins in vanishing or vanished cultures.
