Exhibition Overview

Before the breathin' air is gone
Before the sun is just a bright spot in the night-time
Out where the rivers like to run
I stand alone and take back somethin' worth rememberin'

- Paul Williams and Roger Nichols, For Three Dog Night

In 1970 Three Dog Night released a song called “Out in the Country” which resonates with me still almost 50 years on. I feel so fortunate to be a child of the Mountain West. Lately I have recently been expanding my artistic scope beyond the landscapes of my Wyoming home, spending time in the Nevada desert, where I grew up, Southern Utah where I maintain a second studio, and everywhere in between.

The mountains, skies, ancient rock formations and waterways speak to me of time: It’s preciousness both personally and existentially, it’s relentless march forward, its history and its future. We are reminded daily of the vulnerabilities of this landscape, not only from the effects of population growth, but also climate change, which is no longer a future concern, but an existential one.

I continue to explore these landscapes through my observations and my work as a painter. My newest work incorporates the element of memory. How does my experience of these Western places express itself through the lens of passing time?

I will be showing new pieces from this body of work as a featured Artist at Turner fine Art beginning December 2. Stop by December 5, 5-7, for a reception. Bobbi Miller’s solo show opens then as well.

Curious about encaustic? We were, too. We visited Pamela Gibson in her studio to learn how she uses hot wax, a torch, and other resources to create her abstract landscapes.

A CONVERSATION WITH
PAMELA GIBSON

After moving to Jackson Hole, Pamela Gibson replaced her loom for a torch that burns 1200ºF to paint the landscape around her. We discussed the pleasures of painting with hot wax, the depth of her paintings including her inspiration and “resources,” the concept of time and of letting go.
