Pamela Goldhagen is a painter and printmaker working in Ecuador where she lives with her husband and two dogs. She began her professional art career studying at the Atelier 31 studio in Montpellier, France, and then went on to earn her BFA from California College of the Arts in San Francisco, California. As a member and founder of various art collectives, she has a long history of developing initiatives aimed at exposing adults and children to the creative arts. Her paintings, prints, and sculptures have appeared throughout the world, including: Ecuador, France, and the United States.
Pamela's work explores the interconnectedness of the spiritual and physical realms, and the energy that both unites and divides humans from nature. With the daily loss of biodiversity worsening each passing day, her work frequently scrutinizes human's destructive and detached behaviors, while also highlighting the enlightened and healing aspects that the natural world has to offer. When viewing her work you can notice that nature is depicted in positions of importance and royalty, almost god-like. Balancing the use of subtle language with more ironic and raw imagery, her work compels the viewer to reflect on their relationship with the rest of the species they share the planet with. To this effect, Pamela frequently uses her art as a tool to promote social and environmental responsibility, both inside and outside the gallery, and in collaboration with other artists, businesses, and non-profit organizations.
