Pamela Irving’s work graces some of Melbourne’s public spaces including Larry La Trobe in Melbourne City Square and her huge mosaic reverie Dreaming with Open Eyes covers the Luna Palace Building at Luna Park Melbourne. Irving’s work is narrative, playful and quirky. Pamela makes sculpture, mosaics and works on paper. Her works are gaining popularity overseas with recent commissions in St Petersburg, Russia and Bangkok. One of her works is currently touring in an international show titled Bibliomosaico exhibiting in Ravenna, Italy, the new public library in Riga, Latvia and in Chartres, France.
