My name is Samantha I specialize in abstract painting, born in London.
I graduated from Middlesex University after studying BA Fine Art in 2011.
Using a mixed palette, my work shows the physical gesture in the way I scrape the paint in different directions, to create a textured piece which the audience can interpret in their own way.
I am interested in the process of painting and how different colours are mixed together to create a ‘torn’ effect. I started to look at cityscapes from a bird’s eye point of view, as a starting point. Throughout researching different artists I have been looking at Peit Mondrian as he has a big influence on me from past works I have produced. Gerhard Richter was another artist who has given me a lot of inspiration for using the scraping technique as this became a very important in my work.
I hope that you enjoy looking at my artwork, below are a few links:
