Pamela Sue Keller – Mezzanine Gallery
October 19 – December 31st
Each work is a page from my daily sketchbook journal. My sketchbook is autobiographical so each piece represents a mood, thought, or an idea from that days drawing session. The immediacy of a sketchbook is vital to my creative process of role.
I still want to work on my sketches even after the sketchbook paper has absorbed all the ink and pen tension that it can. So I photograph the page and continue to create by digitally manipulating the photographs. Generally, that means manipulating color balance and saturation. Afterward, I have the pieces commercially printed on canvas and I continue the creative process further using acrylic paint. All these ways of working on the piece help me develop the sketchy ideas into more realized imagery. Many of the titles for the pieces are from poems. I have been reading E.E Cummings, Wallace Stevens since high school, and more recently, Mary Oliver.
