Pam explores liminal states of being with ‘Ghost Elephant
Pam Guhrs-Carr was born in Malawi and grew up in Zambia’s Luangwa Valley, one of Africa’s most prolific wildlife areas, where her father, the famous writer and conservationist Norman Carr, was Game Warden. Pam grew up with an intimate knowledge and understanding of wildlife. After obtaining her Fine Art degree she returned to raise and home-school her two daughters in the bush.
Living in Luangwa’s wilderness has inspired Pam to draw on the area’s history and indigenous cultures. She is immersed in the arcane symbolic language of pictograms, ciphers and signs at the core of the Kunda women’s initiation rock art in Eastern Zambia. These exquisite images confront and explore ideas of transformation and change – specifically life, death, birth, thresholds and liminal states.
Pam has exhibited in Zambia, Botswana, Kenya, South Africa, the United States and London. Her work is represented in museums and collections internationally and has been auctioned by Christies in London.
