2020 'A SUMMER PERSPECTIVE' COLLECTION

Online Exhibition, Tuesday Feb 18th

Gallerysmith


"With a new perspective on her art practice Sam took the summer to push her love of composition. After researching and immersing herself in the artistic life of one of her favourite painters Pierre Boncompain, Sam has produced a collection in honour of Pierre and his fun sense of space. Sam has focused on the use of triangles and perspective whilst continuing to make comment on the pleasures of daily life together with the textiles and ceramics styles of today"
