Pamela Knoll

15th Annual ARC Salon (2020-2021)

Pamela Knoll

United States

Pamela Knoll is a figurative artist who works primarily from life.  She sees her work as a representation of the exchange between the model and herself.  “Working from the model is like a form of intense, careful listening, except it’s visual.  And the drawing or painting that results is a report of what I see and feel during that exchange.”   She has a Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and began seriously studying drawing and oil painting in 2011 in Los Angeles, first with Richard Morris and later with Sean Cheetham.  Her work has been shown at Kate Oh Gallery in Manhattan and at Kate Oh Gallery in Seoul, South Korea, and was included in the 2018, 2019 Korean Fine Arts International Exchange Exhibition which traveled from New York to Seoul.  Pamela lives in Los Angeles where she continues to hone her drawing and painting skills to better serve her art.
