AGGG is pleased to announce Pam DeWitt as our Featured AGGG Artist for May 2017.
Pamela has crafted an exclusive art form not practiced anywhere else, catching the attention of art collectors worldwide. Using recycled glass, she starts by shattering the glass then painstakingly fuses it back together to create a beautifully broken surface for her paintings. She delicately layers watercolors and gold and silver leafing, all while working in reverse as she paints on the back of the glass. The result is a rare luminosity in the finished painting.
Pam has recently added three-dimensional sculpting of the shattered glass pieces to her line of work. Some pieces are lit from within by candles or LED lights.
As each one of a kind piece of glass mingles with the ever changing light, it subtly transforms, interacting with the viewer, just as it was intended to when it was artfully created at the hands of the artist.
“There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in”
