Pam Glew, born in 1978, is co-curator at Paxton Glew and a Brighton based artist best known for her distinctive paintings on fabric. The artist uses dye, paint and stitch to paint, deconstruct and distress vintage materials in her own breed of painting. Glew started making artwork on flags and textiles around 2007 as a response to war, notably 'Afghan Girl' later appeared on the front cover of Le Monde Newspaper.
Flags and textiles are used to explore and question how identity is constructed by the places we inhabit. The artist often incorporates mixed media; bleach, paint, inks and pigment onto found fabric incorporating Japanese prints, vintage denim and heirloom quilts.
The artist has shown internationally in 14 solo shows and over 150 group exhibitions in galleries, art fairs and museums. Pam has produced commissions for Armani, Ralph Lauren, MTV and Microsoft and can be found in private collections worldwide.
