"FROM - A Woman Born as an Assemblage of Pencils for Hands" The title of Pamela Enz's contribution to the New York City panorama describes how her life long obsession with drawing made her feel long before she understood what being an artist meant. She does not remember a time where she was not drawing on any and every surface, with any possible implement, every day.
Pamela Enz discusses how she played the panorama instrument: “I had a journey of discovery, first with scale and then with gradually letting go, continually freeing myself to let the panorama choose where it was going even as it was disappearing from view. There were many feet and mysterious animals amongst the dancing paws, hoofs and tap shoes that appeared. I also wove excerpts from poems into the work-- some are mine and some are written by others. I have not seen the last few inches of my panorama for a while and I am excitedly looking forward to seeing what words I chose to end it with when it is connected to Erin Diebbolls work."
Pamela Enz creates multimedia work with words, her body, ink, oil, and photos. Striving towards an insight into space and being that doesn’t line up with the shorthand of everyday vision she aspires to zoom past the representational into the realm of poetic realism.
