PAM SU

b. 1983

Pam Su’s work is characterized by the anomalous.

They do not look to convention and beauty as a given, rather they challenge ways of seeing. Her work dives into the underbelly of sight and memory, amalgamating a sense of the sinister and ominous with the sublime and redeeming, interweaving between repulsion and allurement. Her moon jars align similarly in thought, albeit taking on the classic moon jar tradition.

 

For Su, each moon jar is a perpetual “space of elsewhere.” It is Su’s desire that her work embody an energy of its own, push boundaries, and give visual insight to tension between control and release. Her practice is a contemporary extension of abstract expressionism.
