Grailing Press Announces Pamela Manché Pearce as its 2024 Artist-in-Residence

Grailing Press is excited to announce a partnership with New York artist Pamela Manché Pearce and to name Ms. Pearce as its 2024 Artist-in-Residence. Pamela’s artwork will be featured on the covers of Grailing, Grailing Press’s online literary magazine, and on the Press's social media. Pamela's art has been featured in Paris Lit Up Magazine, Lines of The League, and various gallery shows and art exhibitions worldwide. This partnership means a great deal to Grailing Press and its mission of fostering great art and popularizing wonderful talents like Pamela. Many of Pamela's works transform traditional art through the use of collage and mixed media. She is able to draw the viewer in with a deft color palate and arresting imagistic play. Her art will remind viewers of Warhol's iconic portraits of Elvis and Marilyn Monroe, where repetition and color effects give the canvas movement and a filmic atmosphere. Pamela's religious themes preserve the beauty of icon painting while her portraits continue the school of the 19th century masters, all while adding comment via intertextual bricolage. In short, she refreshes the classical and offers a personal dialogue with it, inviting viewers to do likewise. Grailing Press is thrilled to share Pamela's work with its audience and thanks her for her incredible work..

Pamela's biography: Even though she always lived in the world of imagination and liked making things, Pamela Manché Pearce never thought of herself as an artist. But a happy later life accident changed all that when an announcement for an art course was mistakenly placed in her mailbox. Intrigued, she registered for Mariano Del Rosario’s collage/mixed media-class at The Art Students League of New York. He became her long-time mentor and muse and The League, her artistic home. As a student she was honored to win The League’s Elizabeth Cady Stanton Blake Merit Scholarship for collages from her series, “Some Girls,” a response to the exploitation and sexualization of young girls. While her proudest achievement is knowing that her work is being enjoyed in the lives of many private collectors around the world, she enjoys being a regular contributor to Paris Lit Up Magazine, Paris, France and annually donating a collage to the Visual Aids “Postcards from the Edge,” benefit for artists with HIV/AIDS. She lives and works in midtown Manhattan.
