Pamela Schilderman (December-February 2009)

Pamela Schilderman: Dutch/ Brazilian nationality; lived in Rwanda till the age of five. In 2004 she graduated with a BA visual arts degree from Goldsmiths University, London. Since then she has had a number of exhibitions the most recent being a solo tour of her latest work ‘Bula Matari’; which consisted of three thousand different salt crystals individually sealed in hand blown glass. Her work is labour-intensive and she has discovered that residencies grant her the time and space she needs to create. Commenting on one of her art works ‘Punctum’ David Emery said “..Pamela has managed to create something very beautiful from something that has no apparent use, value or worth..”
