A Note from Palden Hamilton

"Through painting, I try to connect more deeply with, and create lasting depictions of, the people, places and things I observe. I also hope to connect with the culture and inquiries of others who have shared the pursuit, ancient and innate, of transfiguring pigments into semblances of the observed world. The process of capturing visual "truth" is largely technical, as the eye is a mechanical structure. But all things are observed through veils of memory, meaning, and other interventions of the subjective mind. Therefore, the resulting depictions can be to varying degrees traditional or explorative, emotional or detached, scientific or spiritual... On a personal level, I consider my paintings to be testaments to time spent, souvenirs of experiences."
