Presentation of process by Pamela Viola...
Washington DC based mixed-media artist/photographer Pamela Viola has the expert ability to elevate the mundane to the sublime. This short video, which gives a glimpse into her digital process, is based on a basic photo of a house. By paring the image down to its intrinsic shape and form, she transcends the original with a series of images reminding us of a terrain we may have only walked in our dreams.
With a background in photography, her “aha!” moment came when she realized that she could make “something from nothing.” That any uninspired shot could become a thing of beauty. We have enjoyed watching her artwork develop since this pivotal shift in her thinking, and her abilities continue to expand and adapt alongside new technologies and experimentation.
Pamela is an artist we love to work with. Her vision can align with any given project. Her sense of design and color always culminate in perfection.
