About this product
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.

More Information
A rather large, yet rather powerful painting which manages to do something that most other paintings are unable to, display affection. What is unity? What is affection? What is a bond? These are questions that might seem simple, and easy to answer, however can one truly express affection, togetherness and an unbreakable bond through words? These are the kind of things that you must see in order to fully understand, this is why you sometimes have to shut up, stand back, and let a picture tell the story, without ever speaking a word. This is what this painting is about, the affection and the love that a mother has for her child, the strong bond between them, the affection and unity that not even death could break. Now imagine this painting in your house, imagine it being the piece displayed in the idle of a formal party, and imagine the entire room suddenly going quiet, looking at the picture and admiring it. Every single brush stroke, every single detail, every single curve and every single dash of color, they all tell a story, and the guests are listening to them one by one, refusing to break the silence and interrupt the framed story teller. Indeed the power that lies beyond the canvas is one to be respected, not to mention the fact that the painting itself can move even the most jaded, jagged, scarred and frozen of hearts. This is the power of real art, this is the power that this painting has to offer you.
