Best known for her unique techniques, Pam Glew is a contemporary artist most inspired by the film industry. This comes through in her strongly cinematic paintings that often feature American icons, playing with our notions of patriotism, idols and cultural heritage. Using flags, brocade and American quilts, Glew dyes, bleaches and distresses these surfaces, which then provide a distinctive base for her paintings. Having exhibited alongside heavyweights such as Hirst, Emin and Blake, Glew has also been commissioned for Red Bull and Mitsubishi and worked with a number of fashion houses including Armani and Ralph Lauren. Her artworks feature familiar faces, those exhibited include Anna Wintour and Hunter S. Thompson, which seen on textured backgrounds empower the portraits and showcase Glew’s enviable talent.
