Pamela Silver - The Color of Hope

The Leopard 230x150 cm

Pamela Silver is exhibiting three large abstract watercolors (two of which we see below) at the Brigham Young University Gallery, Mount Scopus in Jerusalem. The Exhibition "Still Waters into Living Colors" curated by Lola Vilenkin features 9 of the very best Israeli watercolorists.

Pamela was born in Johannesburg and lives in Motza Illit. She is a graduate of the University of Cape Town and Goldsmiths, University of London. She studied at the Art Students League of New York and printed her monotypes and etchings for 20 years at the Jerusalem Print Workshop.

An internationally acclaimed artist, she has exhibited in museums and galleries throughout the world. Her artworks are in the collections of The Victoria and Albert Museum, London; Ben Uri, the London Jewish Museum of Art; Museu da Agua, Lisbon; Tama Art University Museum, Tokyo; National Gallery in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe; The Israel Museum; The Tel Aviv Museum of Art; and the National Museum of Women in the Arts and many private collections. Pamela received the 2008 Gold Medal at the Olympic Fine Art Exhibition in Beijing China.

An intuitive artist painting her dreams and experiences in watercolors, and oils, Pamela says:

"I am inspired by nature and my colorful Jerusalem garden which surrounds our house and my studio. My paintings always start in nature, but transcend to different worlds, worlds with different levels of consciousness, memories, feelings, hopes, dreams, and moments in time that keep returning."

Gideon Ofrat, veteran historian and curator wrote about her art in the monograph "In the Shade of the Jacaranda":

"I was astounded in view of this burst of colorist joie de vivre and an emanation of happiness unlike anything I had ever encountered…. But here on the walls of the Artists' House, I clearly identified an association of quality and joy, and wondered at the artist's rare ability to express such an abundance of happiness, and the possibility, nevertheless, of a link between creativity and the joy of living." 050 738 3450
