Moberg Gallery Exhibition

Installation view of "Green Triangle" (2016) Oil on canvas 48 x 60"

Exhibition Dates: April 22 - May 29, 2016

Moberg Gallery 
2921 Ingersoll Avenue 
Des Moines, Iowa 50312 
p. 515-279-9191 


Chicago-based artist Pamela Staker first creates three-dimensional works before painting and collaging her studies of line and color. Though she notes that these do not get literally translated onto the canvas, there are hints of objects and structures amidst her swirling fields. Staker’s abstract landscapes confuse the urban/rural duality. 

Take “Magical Forest (urban construction)”: the mixing of magentas and whites culminate in drips, and a gorgeous, almost lavender wash over the large canvas. And “The Cabin” suggests both a frontal and an aerial view, as if Google Earth were an artist’s abstract view onto a searched-for cabin, here, possibly, a dotted piece collaged into the painting. This yellow, gray and black work suggests the natural world overlaid (-run?) with concrete supplements, and a tree (or is it roads) that appear to become part of both layers. Staker’s play with planar dimensions and multi-perspectival approaches results in geometric emersions and organic immersions that cavort, giving the viewer a palette of light angles and angles of light tempered with the roundness of her loose brush strokes, which places something slightly darker below, beside, and between.

Sculptural Collage to Painting

(on right)
"Grean Triangle" (2016)
Oil on canvas, 48 x 60"


Fresh New Work for Spring
At their core these paintings and 3-d collage works are about joy. They are a performance of sorts – spontaneously choreographed – playful and sensitive – free-flowing within the bounds of carefully constructed compositions.The mixed media constructions are an exercise in free association and serve as launching points for the paintings. The work is advanced through scale and liberal paint handling - applying my marks quickly and with a confidence that is intuitive and decidedly unfussy.
