  • Artist Statement

    Born in Sydney Australia in 1963, Pamela Honeyfield attended the National Art School at Darlinghurst Sydney, 1989 - 1991 completing her Diploma in Fine Art and completed her Masters in Art Therapy at the University of Western Sydney 1994-1995.

     

    She has travelled extensively and brings most of those experiences into her art work. Pamela's work has recently been acquired by Allen Arthur Robinson Collection in Sydney. She now joins 19 prominent and emerging artists in this collection.

     

    Influenced by artists such as Mark Rothko, Tony Tuckson, and an admirer of many Australian contemporaries, Pamela loves to visit galleries where she can keep abreast of current art and has begun to acquire a modest art collection from a number of prominent Australian artists.

     

    Artist Statement

     

    I don’t always have the words, so I like to express myself through art.

     

    For me, art is not about placing a price tag, it’s about discovering something of yourself and the world as you move through the process of creating, and sometimes the result, the product of that process is aesthetically pleasing to yourself and to others. I don’t intend to allow a colour, shape, line or title to ‘close’ off my work but to think of it as a window of thought, open ended, a reflection or reference for others to identify with and respond to.

     

    How would I best describe my work? Abstract yes, digestible landscape with hints of the obvious. Australia has a wealth of abundant colour. I love autumn so I often find myself painting with the colours that derive from that season. Sometimes it’s a ‘scape’ not necessarily of or about the land but of an emotion or experience. If I’m moved by a place visited, travelled or enjoyed I may reflect on the colour, mood or atmosphere, this may provide for a possible series, however I don’t always have set rules for painting. Sometimes I just go about painting and allow the marks and the movement of colour and shape to play, interact. Making abstract art is an art in itself, there are many variables and you have to be willing to loose and regain until it works. The best marks made and paintings created are when I seemingly disappear for a while in my work, and when I return then I know that I have had some kind of ‘happening’ with the canvas.
