Pam Shelden Mayes

I am trying to recreate what happens in the spaces where the imagination can take shape and abstract reality goes on even if we can’t see it.  So I am making it up.... iotas, infinity loops, causes & effects, and air currents,  and tensions, exploring what is visually fast and slow with voids and complexities.
