COLLECTION

Feb 18th

Gallerysmith

"Sam has elevated her practice to a new level with this summer series.The works are a sophisticated take on modernism, and she has ventured into a more confident palette which is totally divine. As an art collector myself, I could happily add one (or more) of these to my own personal collection, so it is going to hard to let them go, but whoever ends up with one of Sam's Summer Perspective paintings will be very, very happy." Marita, Gallerysmith director

‘2019 THE COUNTRY COLLECTION

October 29th

Gallerysmith


"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!"

Online Exhibition July 30th

‘2019 THE LONG WHITE CLOUD COLLECTION’

July 30th 

Gallerysmith

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.

"Sam Michelle is a New Zealand born artist who has lived in Melbourne since 2001. Painting from her Mornington studio, Sam draws inspiration from music, art and interiors that give her a sense of joy. Sam is interested in how this occurs in art, and how content and colour can trigger memories or simply a feeling within. 

Flourish explores her love of the still life genre, combining a warm, soft colour palette with her love of ceramics, flowers, textiles and paint. Sam aims for her works to elicit a strong feeling of calmness or a sudden beautiful moment of nostalgia.

After Sam’s sell out success as part of the Life Still group show at Saint in November 2016, Flourish will be Sam’s highly anticipated first solo show"
