Responding to the beauty and expressive possibilities of flowers, both domestic and wild, Pamela Glasscock remains faithful to the details of her subject, yet imbues her paintings with emotion and expression not usually found in more analytically defined botanicals. With meticulous brush strokes, Glasscock, sensitive to the infinite possibilities of juxtapositions, renders compositions ranging from the nearly chaotic to the mathematically ordered. The eloquence of the negative space determined by the careful placement of each bloom or pod is as important to this incredibly talented artist as are the shapes of the floral forms. Suggestive of anthropomorphic metaphors, Glasscock’s flowers often form ambiguous relationships with each other as they co-mingle on the paper. As stem and leaves entwine, each bloom seemingly vies, as in nature, for the sole attention of the viewer.
