"Thoughts and Dreams" is a contemporary collection of abstract original paintings by our new partner artist Pam Winbolt.
Thoughts enter into your head, some reflective, fragmented, invasive, even those that get tangled with dreams. Dreams come and go, forgotten, bright and colourful ones, hazy or even hidden, remembered and forgotten.
“Through my paintings I hope to develop an understanding of the experiences we go through during our lives by showing emotions through colour, adding layer upon layer as with the complexity of emotion connecting mind and body with the flow of movement. As with most people I have been through some difficult times which coming through has given me more strength and understanding which I believe has helped enhance my paintings“
"My work is inspired by the connections between the mind, body, pain, healing, and ageing as well as our emotional attachment to water. Each series of work has evolved from a journey to see how mind and body work in union, strength comes from fragility showing hope and a positive attitude. Concentration of the mind can conquer some of the pain in the body and the activity of the body might heal the torment of the mind, using the mind with discipline and energy can overcome so much. Travelling through the physical and mental boundaries is a wonderful experience."
Pam has exhibited her artwork extensively throughout England, as well as in France, Germany and America. She has also worked on many community projects and has received several awards during her visual arts career.
