Yesterday, I had the privilege of meeting a local artist, Pamela Blotner, works in sculpture, drawing, and illustrations. Hopefully, she’ll be offering some courses on religion/spirituality and the arts at the Graduate Theological Union through the Center for Arts and Religious Education in the near future. She occasionally teaches at Pixar as well. Check out some of her work after the jump.
You can see more of Pamela’s work at her website. Some of my favorite examples follow her statement about her work:
My work has always been concerned with mythology and belief and where they intersect with human experience. I am also interested in stories, folk stories, urban stories and the wisdom that is passed down from one generation to the next, textured by landscape, heritage, and belief, that shapes and maintain a culture and ensures its continued survival.
