Philip Martin Gallery is proud to present, “Window Prism Eyes,” its first exhibition at the gallery of paintings by Los Angeles-based artist Pamela Jorden. Pamela Jorden’s paintings are presented on shaped stretchers, around which the linen of her works is stretched, and upon which Jorden applies the paint in directed, pushed and dragged flows.

Since March, Pamela Jorden writes, “While spending most of my time either at home or in my studio, I’ve been thinking about looking, both inwardly and outwardly, and how windows frame my view.” Jorden’s home is in the Echo Park section of Los Angeles and looks out over the busy urban park surrounding Echo Park Lake. Her studio is downtown – just north of the 10 Freeway, just south of the sprawling low-rise warehouses of LA’s garment district. Of the works in the show, Jorden writes, “One rectangular painting is inspired by the chance composition and unexpected beauty of a graffiti covered glass pane in my studio windows. The windowpane’s layered and translucent color is transformed by light and time of day. I try to capture the transience of color and the oscillation between transparency and opacity with my work.”
