  • About the artist

Made from found and collected objects and materials, with a curled element at its' core, 'Insula' reflects on a time to retreat, finding a place of safety in isolation. - wine rack, organza fabric, foam tube, string, feather pillow

Sam creates abstract assemblages incorporating found objects and materials, referencing domestic and architectural space. These low tech, mixed-media constructions combine a rhythmical, systematic design and geometric structure with softer, flexible elements that enable chance variations. Her working process is guided primarily by an intuitive response to the materials themselves, often leading to unexpected outcomes. These playful interactions, surprising and yet familiar, seek to create a sense of balance, building dynamic connections between materials and the surrounding space, animated through the use of colour, light and shadow.

Artworks are presented in photographic form, printed directly onto aluminium dibond for a minimalist finish that best highlights the unique character of each work.

Based in London, Sam started her practice over twenty five years ago, creating site specific public art installations, engaging local, often marginalised communities.  Arts facilitation has remained an important focus of her work, with an ethos of accessibility lying at its core.  Sam has been awarded public art commissions across the UK, exhibiting sculpture at the Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden in Surrey and the Southbank’s Royal Festival Hall.  These new ‘post lockdown’ artworks reflect her core values, with a resourceful and joyful celebration of sculptural form.
