Pamela Thurston
"I begin a painting because I am attracted to a surface or a form and as the painting progresses it becomes a conversation. Each completed work is the result of the layering of thoughts, each layer delving a little further beyond the surface of things. I think that’s how life is – many-surfaced and many-layered. To live well is to appreciate the surface of things, but also to think deeply beyond it."
