Oxalis by Pam Miller, exhibition in the cafe gallery
The exhibition of water colours and oil paintings by Pam Miller will be at the Brunel Museum cafe gallery until March every day 10am – 5pm
“Nature and natural forms have always inspired me, and my reconnection with my own creativity began with walks along the shore of the river Thames around Rotherhithe, where I have lived for over twenty years.
“I have spent most of my working life teaching art in secondary schools in London and the North East, and I continue to moderate GCSE Art for the AQA examining board. I left teaching a few years ago to concentrate on my own artwork and creative pursuits.
“In my recent work, I continue to be inspired by nature. I am also continuing my exploration and experimentation with the medium of watercolours and oils.
“For over a year I have had an Oxalis Triangularis plant on my kitchen windowsill. I have studied my Oxalis at various times of the day, and this lovely delicate plant has been the inspiration for my latest work. I have been fascinated with the rich, intense colour and shape of the leaves and how at times they seem to take on the appearance of a butterfly’s wings. This metamorphosis is especially noticeable as the leaves begin to ‘close up’ in the evening.
“I do hope you enjoy my recent work.”
