Samantha Cary

Seduced by the physical world of colour, form and sensation, Samantha Cary's work hovers on the edge of narrative. Between layers of colour, potential stories and meanings suggest themselves.

"My work as a painter and printmaker begins with observations and memory, manipulated and transformed through the making process. The real business lies in inhabiting the unknown spaces between intention and actuality where the surprises and accidents are found."

Samantha finds proofing a screen print much like a slowed down, dissected and extended process of painting, likening it to playing a record on very slow speed, "each beautiful accident revealing itself slowly."
