> DESCRIPTION
Samantha Thomas’ works are steeped in the canon of painting while actively engaging in multiple disciplines. Her new series of work, entitledTexture/Parameter, marks a continued exploration with the limits of the traditional canvas. Thomas’ exercises in spatial concerns are informed by landscape and our proximity to it. Her art is a means to explore the “place” of the painting, to use the artist’s words. Foreground and background are conceived not by imposing perspective but by building out the materiality of the canvas, occasionally exaggerating core structural components. These assemblage works fit into the scheme of the picture plane that serve as analogies for how the physical and the psychological inform one other as distinct realms of experience. Texture/Parameter builds on a unique approach that seeks the architecture and sculptural form in abstraction.
 
Samantha Thomas received her BA from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena in 2004. Thomas has exhibited at William Turner Gallery, Alexys Schwartz Projects, D-Block Projects, Here is Elsewhere Gallery, and Royal T in Los Angeles. Thomas lives and works in Los Angeles.
