Brisbane born artist Pamela Gough’s solo exhibition for 2015 “The Way Back Home” is coming to Graydon Gallery, New Farm.

Pamela’s contemporary landscapes are narratives embedded with stories, maps, symbols and homes, especially from her own backyard of Brisbane. Growing up in Queensland is far away from the origins of family traditions that this artist grew up with. Many Queensland homes and family stories, however, draw upon their origins and traditions from distant lands over-the-seas, and audiences will connect with this element.

This exhibition features new paintings and sketches inspired by Pamela’s journey back to her family origins exploring the Celtic and medieval influences that pervade her work. She is drawn to the patterns in the landscape and a passion for historical and preserving colonial architecture. Her vibrant textured work once again scratches at the surface of life to reveal the stories behind the homes and the spirit of a place.

“Many of us, unless we are of Aboriginal descent, can trace our heritage from somewhere else ‘over-the-seas’ and for me it is Ireland and England. My great grandparents made the journey by boat to this new land in the mid 1800’s. My great grandfather apparently even dived off a ship to save the captain’s son and was granted some land in New South Wales (but we were all called that NSW then) – a true story," Pamela narrated.

Pam’s attention to detail continues in her narrative paintings of beautiful buildings, landscapes and symbols, providing a patchwork of stories commanding a closer inspection that reveals the spirit and connection behind each piece.

Followers of Pam’s exhibitions and passionate storytelling narratives of local Brisbane landscapes and historical Queenslanders through texturised paint, old maps and symbols scratched on the canvas won’t be disappointed by her latest offering.

“Beneath what we see are the plans and dreams of those who have gone before us and built up the environment we are blessed with today," she added.
