Focus on Pam Foley – Sculptor & Tutor
On Saturday 25th April, Sunningwell School of Art joined a virtual celebration of sculpture during the sixth, annual International Sculpture Day, or ISDay. What better way was there to celebrate, than recognise the work of our very own sculpture students, imaginatively led by dedicated sculptor and tutor, Pam Foley.
Pam Foley – Sculptor and Tutor
This is my 12th year as a tutor of Life Sculpture at Sunningwell School of Art. I’m delighted that the art school is involved for the first time with International Sculpture Day #ISDay.
Abstraction from the human figure is the consistent theme in my work. I sculpt to evoke certain emotions, feelings, or experiences.
Recurring recent themes include solitude (apt during this time of the coronavirus pandemic), and sorrow.
Hundreds of people joined us on ISDay to celebrate all things sculptural by dropping in to our virtual sculpture exhibition to see works created over a 10 week period at Sunningwell School of Art. These sculptures were produced just prior to COVID-19 lockdown by our advanced sculpture students and students at the beginning of their life sculpture journey, all under the attentive and skillful guidance of Pam Foley.
