Biography

Pamela Phatsimo Sunstrum’s (b. 1980, Mochudi, Botswana) multidisciplinary work encompasses drawing and animation, and alludes to mythology, geology and theories on the nature of the universe. Her drawings – narrative landscapes that appear simultaneously futuristic and ancient – shift between representational and fantastical depictions of volcanic, subterranean, cosmological and precipitous landscapes.
