Pam Carter Solo Show Spring 2017
Private View evening Wednesday 26th April from 7.30pm
Pam Carter has an international reputation for her strong, expressive paintings of the Scottish landscapes.
Pam spends the summer in Skye and the Outer Isles from where she draws the inspiration for many of her colourful, atmospheric oils, which capture the remoteness and peacefulness of that unspoilt region of Scotland. This rugged West Scottish Coast provides the ideal subject matter with its isolated cottages and wild colours of the machair and brachen. Pam is also drawn to the East Scottish Coastal area with its majestic cliffs, fishing villages and farm land. On her trips to the Western Scottish Isles she has been able to capture the magic of the landscape with its sweeping golden sands and turquoise tranquil waters which convey an almost tropical paradise.
In Pam Carter paintings a sense of the place is important. However Pam does not seek to capture a scene with complete accuracy. Sometimes it is the elements and the untamed force of nature that she finds inspiring, but importantly it is the essential quality of light which is present in the Scottish land and seascapes. In her painting Pam often interprets the scene with abstract elements. Colours are often bold but there is always a sense of subtlety and balance in the works. Pam’s aim is to ultimately create a visual sensation and pleasing image in her oil paintings.
