Pamela Green – Tree #11


Pamela Green, Tree #11
2013 ink on paper 10-1/2 x 11 inches
On view at Augen Gallery (January 2 – February 1)

Pamela Green’s Drawings is a lovely winter show: this beautiful collection of ink drawings of leafless trees is a welcome reminder that there’s still plenty to look at outside when the days get short and the weather cold. My favorite drawings are ones like Tree #11 in which the tree escapes the page. This expressive and precisely rendered network of twisted branches, anthropomorphic in places, is powerful in part because it captures the strangeness of trees. While trees are familiar, they are much bigger and older than we are and their lives have a different rhythm. Take a fresh look at the trees all around you and at Green’s drawings, too.
