Pamela Markham
2Dog Press
New York, NY

A unifying feature in my work is irony. Not the smirky type, but rather a wry, sunshine-mixed-with-clouds irony, as in A Day in the Life of May Green, Wobbly Old Delhi, and Holy Moly, a catechism of my frustrations as a printer. In Amaryllis Story, the intention is to elicit a heart-grabbing irony about doomed promise. A creepier treatment of this theme is offered in the bedtime story Sourland Song from the Lindbergh Kidnapping project that has occupied me for several years. A graduate of Sarah Lawrence College, Pamela Markham also has a BFA in painting from the School of Visual Arts. Since 2005, she has created broadsides, folios, and books, learning letterpress under Mindy Belloff's tutelage at Studio on the Square, NYC. She studied photography at ICP and has a journalism background, previously as a staff writer and editor for the Gannett Newspapers and more recently as a freelance critic for several art magazines. She is the founder of Two Dog Press and lives in New York City and Westerly, RI.
