Pam Glew, is a contemporary British artist, best known for her unique bleaching technique on fabric. By painting directly onto vintage textiles, the artist plays with our notion of idols, patriotism and the culture of heritage. Vintage flags, brocade and antique American quilts are dyed black and painted freehand with bleach. The portrait slowly develops in the painting process resulting in a ghostly image emerging from the cloth. The artist she has shown worldwide in 100 group exhibitions and 6 major solo shows.
She has collaborated with Terry O’Neill and Bill Wyman and produced commissions for Armani, Ralph Lauren, MTV and Mitsubishi Bank.
