2019 THE COUNTRY COLLECTION
Online Exhibition October 29th
‘2019 THE COUNTRY COLLECTION'
"The idea for this series was sparked whilst Sam was reading an article on cloth in a recent copy of Belle. The article talked about tartan and tradition, and as you all know, Sam has a love of fabric and design, so it was the perfect storm. Sam began to have visions of incorporating this exciting fabric with its rich history into her work. So this new series includes botanical still life works with tartan cloth and country landscapes around her studio. It even includes one or two paintings with horses draped in tartan rugs!"
2019 THE LONG WHITE CLOUD COLLECTION
Online Exhibition July 30th
‘2019 THE LONG WHITE CLOUD COLLECTION’
This collection was inspired by Sam's reccent trip to Christchurch. As a NZ born artist, Sam was excited to return in search of inspiration which she knew wouldn't be hard to find. During her travels, Sam started seeing sculptural personalities within the landscape, prompting her to bring landscape elements into her still life compositions. Throughout the collection you will notice in her vessels, textiles and flora, a nod to all things New Zealand.
