Pamela Tait

Pamela says: "I was talking to someone about how I create all the little characters in my work and he taught me a new word, Pareidolia. This is the psychological phenomenon where the mind responds to a stimulus by perceiving a familiar pattern where none exists, and this is exactly what happens when I look at trees. By visually exploring the lines and forms created by the overlapping branches of trees, a gathering of sweetness and darkness appears. And through this personal connection with the trees in my landscape I also create my own folklore."
