A picture of work by artist Pamela Hardesty
A solo exhibition by Pamela Hardesty featuring a series of canvas works as ‘viewfinders’ toward prayer, inspired by the Norden bombsight views her father calibrated in WWII at nearby Horham Airfield of the US Airforce. These paintings highlight ideas of precision search as exemplified by the bombsight, using print, construction, and stitch in symbolic and complex layerings of images toward devotion.

Pamela's paintings will be arranged in a sequence around the centerpiece of this exhibition: a huge canvas floor collage presented as an aerial view over a fragment of the field of human experience. Inspired by the memorial floor slabs in Norwich Cathedral, this pattern of blocks more specifically spotlights Horham, and the work of Pamela’s father, through shadowy photography and drawing as a kind of landscape of memory.
