Pam Owens is a Newark born and raised artist. She has a B.A. in History and an M.F.A. in Photography. Owens does not use photography as a medium for literal representation of the world. She is instead interested in her medium as a way to see with the invisible eye, to experience something beyond a depiction of an object or space to a sensation, an energy contained within a two dimensional plane. The title of the exhibition provides a clue as to her intention. Architecture may be defined as forming a unified, coherent form or structure, but when inverted there is room for something much less concrete. This is the space that Owens occupies with her photos.
