Pamela Fraser's artistic practice involves experimentation with concepts of color, shape and space, and she has lately taken her practice out into the landscape. Fraser's piece for Omi consists of over 200 vividly glazed ceramic sticks which "roam" the grounds of The Fields Sculpture Park guided by Fraser. The last two incarnations of this work: Omi (Grid), and Omi (Steps) outlined a hedgerow, traced the line of Robert Grosvenor's Untitled, 1984, cut across a hillside, and hugged the shadow of Alison Saar's Summer, 2011. In early October, Fraser's work traveled indoors to the glass walls of Omi's Visitors Center. This time Fraser relinquished her authorship to some degree, allowing others to arrange and install her sticks. This new iteration is simultaneously part of the architecture and the landscape beyond.

Fraser has made and exhibited work for 20 years. Past solo exhibitions include at Galerie Schmidt Maczolleck in Cologne, Germany; Galleria Il Capricorno in Venice, Italy; asprey jacques in London, England; Casey Kaplan in New York, NY; and The Blaffer Museum in Houston, TX. Select group exhibitions include galleries and institutions such as GAD in Oslo, Norway; The Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, NY; Wurttembergischer Kunstverein in Stuttgart, Germany; Dundee Center of Contemporary Art in Scotland; and The Crayon Miscellany, here at Art Omi in Ghent, NY.
Fraser lives in Barnard, Vermont, and is a professor at The University of Vermont. In addition to her studio practice, she writes about art and organizes exhibitions. Her book How Color Works: Color Theory in the 21st Century will be published by Oxford University Press in 2017.

These works by Pamela Fraser were originally included in the 2015 summer exhibition, The Crayon Miscellany.
