Voices: Pamela Fraser
Gallery 400 Lecture Room
1240 West Harrison Street
University of Illinois at Chicago visiting faculty member Pamela Fraser’s (born 1965) loosely graphic paintings, usually gouache on canvas or wood, are subtly detailed compositions. Her abstracted representational forms appear like an innocuous symbolic language that infuses flat fields of color with playful, sometimes humorous commentary. It has been said that her work “speaks to our emotionally complex and often ambiguous understanding of images.”
Fraser received an MFA in painting from the University of California, Los Angeles in 1992. She has had solo exhibitions of her work at Galerie Schmidt Maczolleck, Cologne and Galleria Il Capricorno, Venice. Fraser is a recipient of the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award and continues to be featured in national and international publications.
