The Abstract Sculpture of Pamela Soldwedel

Art that you want to touch and feel. The curves, the gentleness, the flow, the movement. Imagine your hand moving slowly as you progress up the curve and then speed down and around the curve. Like a car on a roller coaster. Imagine feeling the coolness of the stone or metal, the solidity of it and the gaps...the positive and negative space. Imagine picking it up...if you can...and holding it heavy in your lap. These are creations that need to be touched...need to be felt...even if only in your mind. In essence, these wonderful creations, by Pamela Soldwedel, have rhythm...the kind of rhythm that comes from deep within one's soul. The rhythm of life and of nature. The rhythm of love and of hope.

    What a wonderful, sensitive way to express your reactions to my work. Actually, your words brought me to tears.

    Thanks from the bottom of my heart!
