Visually Complex: The Art Portfolio of Pamela Pitt

A layered collage based on a city street viewWe are in the Twilight Zone

Pamela Pitt is a collage artist and photographer based in San Francisco. The artist’s work is visually complex and addresses issues from the aesthetic to the overtly political. In recent works Pamela has applied her talent for collage to current issues including the pandemic and political unrest in the United States.

I’m impressed by just how much detail the artist is able to pack into each of her images. Works in the series Navigating 2020 with Collage present sprawling landscapes packed with images ranging from architectural details to flora and fauna. Animals, plants, scientific imagery and bits of discordant technology are positioned so as to appear part of backgrounds -- environments consisting of textured, hand-painted planes as well as fragments of real landscapes cut from magazines and photographs.

Pamela’s Freedom Without Borders presents a detailed, unflinching yet hopeful look at the hypocrisy of border disputes and restrictions placed on individuals in spite of free commercial crossings. Combining aesthetics drawn from various cultural and environmental sources, Pamela builds images that demand a lingering look.
