The play of openness to multiple interpretations creates freedom and spontaneity for Pemberton and his work. He employs accident and surprise as much as possible. The chase for an absence of apparent meaning (or an escape from) keeps the works fluid. Pemberton’s paintings are more a byproduct of this investigation rather than a planned endeavor.
‘As I work, I like to be devoid of personal interpretation. My effort is to stay in spaces between certainties. That’s where I find possibilities.’
