(Los Angeles, CA) TAG Gallery is pleased to present Artifacts of Grace, an exhibit by Pam Douglas whose body of work inspires human connection and resolve within female figures inhabiting found palm fronds and tree branches. Having broached sculptural substrates to paint on for the first time, Douglas fuses the materials’ physical qualities to highlight the human form. The works confront viewers as complex objects of narrative, emotional, and physical contradiction. Douglas envisions her works as part of a larger dialogue raising awareness of not only immediate humanitarian crises, but as embodiments of women’s stories worldwide. 

 

Spurred by rise of displaced populations and an erosion of civil liberties around the globe, Douglas’ works are renewed with a sense of urgency. The works call attention to the welfare of women and imbue her works with questions of nature-nurture, life and death, and the passage of time. Douglas’ depiction of a mother and child echo broader mother-child archetypes throughout art history, and cast it in lieu of its politicization. Douglas comments, “Children wrenched from their mother’s arms compelled me to my newest work STAY WITH ME. I tried to express optimism in this series but the horror at the border hurts too much. I didn’t want to illustrate issues or use my art as one more in a chorus of complaint. So most of this series reaches beyond this moment. But we are in a startling time. We’ve heard the cries of imprisoned children, and these works express a profound urge to avow our power and a refusal to be repressed.” 

 

Pam Douglas is a Los Angeles based artist whose works have been included in the California African-American Museum and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), has been covered by Shana Nys Dambrot in the Huffington Post, and by Scarlet Cheng, contributor to the Los Angeles Times.
