Pam Walker

Pam Walker’s practice is a response to the urban landscape under reconstruction. Her paintings feature specific sites, Willesden Junction, Kings Cross, and in her exhibition the 2012 London Olympic Site.

I attempt to respond to memories and feelings about a place rather than a more literal transcription, thus my painting becomes more about residues and fragments.

Trained at St Martins School of Art in the 1980’s Pam has had six successful solo exhibitions and has had work shown in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and the Mall Galleries. Her image of the Kings Cross Construction Site won the Metro newspaper award in 2004.

Her show Higher Faster Stronger, a response to the 2012 Olympic construction, featured work short listed for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.

Pam also runs regular collage workshops which explore various methods of constructing images in small groups.

Her last show, held at The Peggy Jay Gallery Hampstead in 2016 entitled ‘Beached ..all things stranded grounded and abandoned’ featured collages and oils from Pams wanderings along the beaches of the South Coast.

A review from The London Grip April 2016:

‘Pam’s images capture the familiar objects of beachscapes – boats, huts, chains, nets, fenders and so on – in a strikingly original way. Bright but harmonious colours draw attention to objects that might otherwise escape notice but never make them seem unnatural or incongruous. And the colours draw the viewer in to the paintings and encourage you to linger and study them’
