Pam Glew..

I came across the work of Pam Glew whilst researching artists that use bleach in their work.
Although I used the discharge technique onto fabric, bleach was something I hadn't really used previous to my University course in my drawings, but I find it can create some very interesting outcomes.
Pam Glew is a contemporary British artist who uses the bleaching technique on fabrics and flags to create some amazing pieces of work.I was initially attracted to her work due to her ability to draw such detailed, life-like portraits. I love how she draws onto pages from books too, as it is something unusual and adds further interest to the images, but it was her prints onto fabrics that really caught my eye.I find it fascinating how the screen prints are such good quality, just like photographs. Although the meanings behind them are slightly twisted and sad I can't help but love them!
