About Pam Jarrett
She is a studio painter, trained to work in a darkened room with a single, northern light source. The colors achieved by this technique yield lush tones in Portraits as well as in Still Lifes. It is Pam’s belief the spirit of a person or object is best realized from actual life settings rather than from photographs.
Pam is currently specializing in Vanitas, a genre of still life painting dating back to Antiquity. The Vanitas is a portrait depicting the person through the presentation of various objects and symbols. It is an homage. A skull or snuffed out candle is often in the work to represent mortality and the transient nature of the material life.
As a member of the Copyist Program at the National Gallery of Art for 9 years, Pam augmented her skills by recreating the likes of Turner, Rembrandt and Degas.
You can view her works at La Civetta in the Piazza of Greve In Chiani, Italy.
