This auction is raising proceeds for St Wilfrid's Hospice Eastbourne
Pam Glew, born in 1978, is a Brighton based artist best known for her distinctive paintings on fabric.
Collage, sewing paper, flags and textiles are used to explore and question how identity is constructed by the places we inhabit. Paint, inks and pigment are applied to found fabric adhered to panels, often incorporating contemporary and vintage Japanese prints, vintage denim and heirloom textiles. The use of textiles and dress making pattern; washing, dyeing and sewing cloth are a nod to the scarcity of women artists documented in the history of art.
The artist has shown internationally in 7 major solo shows and over 100 group exhibitions, alongside such artists as Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin and Peter Blake. She has exhibited at Dallas Contemporary and Honolulu Museum of Art and has been shown at major art fairs in London, New York, Miami and Seoul. Her work has appeared in print publications including Le Monde (France), Neo2 (Spain), Qvest Magazine (Germany) and The Independent (UK).
Pam has produced commissions for Armani, Ralph Lauren, MTV and Microsoft and has collaborated with iconic photographer Terry O'Neill. Her work is housed at Saatchi & Saatchi London, Red Bull and Mitsubishi Bank and can be found in private collections worldwide.
