Pamela Stretton’s work explores a dynamic play between 2 elements, involving not only the visual binary of scale, but also the merging of digital photographic print mediums with handcrafted re-working.
Her subject matter originated as a self-study focusing on feminine beauty ideals inspired by a past battle with anorexia. Her work has evolved gently in a few directions exploring amongst other things notions of consumerism, women’s roles in society, narcissism and plays on social media.
