Pamela Matsuda-Dunn

Like many artists, I have always made stuff. I grew up in Hawaii and was (college) educated in Oregon, moving to New York City, where I co-founded and co-directed a company called BalletWorks in the 80s. It was in New York where I really came of age as an artist, first working with music and sound and the human body, and then with material objects. I now live and work in western Massachusetts.

My work comments on the collision and blending of cultures, conflicting cultural symbols, and the hubris of humans. It also reflects my fascination with materials and the visual power of the cumulative.
