Pam Moxley • Profile

 

Pam Moxley

Pam Moxley, a self-taught Artist, has spent the last twenty one years pursuing her fascination with photography and mixed media. She is best known for her taut black and white and sepia-toned images which are simple in composition yet complex in theme.  Her works are inspired by her own childhood and watching the growth of her four children.  Each of her works are created to remind the viewer of their own time as a child, when they embraced life with an unbridled moxie.

mox•ie [ móksee ] Definition: courage combined with inventiveness (slang).  Once she is finished with the photographic component, Pam continues to create through several other mediums. Her mixed media works are individually created with multiple layers. She starts by painting a dimensional board with several layers and textures of paint. She then uses an image transfer process that she has developed to add the photograph to the board. Pam finishes each of the works with a poured layer of high gloss resin. The combination of these techniques brings each of these individual works of art to life. Mixing the distress of the transfers with the brilliance of the resin creates a beautiful mix of nostalgia and high concept polish. Pam’s work is held in many private and public collections throughout the United States including the Pinnacle Bank Collection, City of Atlanta collection, the APG collector’s portfolio, Blackbird Technologies, The DeVos Collection, MOCA GA, and the Southeast Museum of Photography. Pam’s work has also been featured in films and national magazines. 

 


Pam Moxley • Statement

I have always felt that looking through the lens of a camera is much like looking at life from the perspective of a child.  The magnificence of life is fresh and waiting to be discovered.  I see things when I photograph that I would never see without a camera in my hands.  Photography graces me with the momentary freedom to leave the responsibilities of life behind, and view the majesty of life as though I am, again, six years old.

Through my mixed media series "In the Hands of Babes," and these additional recent works, I hope to transport you, the viewer, back to your own childhood, to a time of unbridled moxie. As children, we brought home all kinds of interesting (and sometimes even slightly scary) treasures.  We spent our summer days discovering. I hope that you the viewer can remember what it was like to never hesitate, to embrace all the surprises that cross your path.
