About the Artist
Pamela Reynolds has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in both the United States and Europe. Born in Los Angeles, Ms. Reynolds divides her time between Boston and Italy. She studied painting at the Accademia di Belle Arti Sassari in Italy. Her work is included in numerous private collections in Europe and the United States, as well as in the collections of Harvard Management Company, Bainco International Investors, the University of Virginia and Color Kinetics, Inc.
Her work has also been featured at the Ritz-Carlton Boston, the Boston Design Center's Boston Dream Home 2008 and exhibited at Boston City Hall, The Italian Consulate in Boston and the University of Sassari, Italy. In 2011, her work appeared in the MGM film “Zookeeper,” starring Rosario Dawson and Kevin James.
My paintings are deeply entrenched in the abstract expressionist tradition. My quest is to use spontaneous gesture as a way of accessing intuitive truths about the nature of our world and of ourselves. I consider my work to be organic and inspired principally by the natural elements - - - the feel and look of a rough stone, the rhythm and cadence of music, the play of sun through the trees, the fluidity and movement of water.
I normally work in series exploring these themes, and groups often differ dramatically in tone and style. In all cases, however, I prefer that the paintings speak for themselves and that the viewer take away from the painting what he or she will - - - therein lies the power of abstraction.
