Art Edit presents a curated selection of artists whose work is inspired by nature.
Although there the intricate photographs of Pamela Pauline are grounded in Australiana, there is a sense of flight and freedom that lends the images universal resonance. The artist grew up camping and cross-country skiing in the high plains of Wyoming, and her art has drawn upon these outdoors influences since the inception of her practice.
There is a certain minimalism within the layout of the work, but the subjects themselves are painted in high detail by Pamela’s lens – detail that is further honed during her meticulous editing process. This post-shoot skill is particularly evident in images such as I’ll Fly Away, wherein elements from 80 photographs are combined into a final, sprawling composition.
