Pamela Smith Hudson: Empty Space
2525 Michigan Ave, Building B-3
Santa Monica, CA 90404
“My work combines printmaking, layers of paint, wax, and collage to build textured surfaces on panels, canvas, and paper. I rely on the physical process to create my abstract landscapes and topographical works, where each layer is constructed, then deconstructed. Manipulating the materials with spontaneous and intuitive interactions and methods helps me explore limits. While it may be hidden, the energy of each layer is present within the work.” — Pamela Smith Hudson
