Pam Thurston 'My UnDoing'

Pam Thurston
"My Undoing"
oil on canvas
30 x 24"

 I begin a painting because I am attracted to a surface or a form and as the painting progresses it becomes a conversation. Each completed work is the result of layering of thoughts, each layer delving a little further beyond the surface of things. I think that’s how life is – many-surfaced and many-layered. To live well is to appreciate the surface of things, but as well to think beyond it.
