Statement

                Born in 1991 in Hamilton, Ontario, Samantha Hanrath is a young emerging artist currently based in Hamilton. Hanrath makes work based around themes of identity, human relationships and the negotiation of fiction and reality. Her painting practice typically involves realistically rendered portraits placed within in an abstract or surreal ground. In addition to traditional oil on canvas techniques, Hanrath also uses peeled acrylic paint and latex to create sculptural works which allow paint to be suspended freely in space or to stand sculpturally. Her print practice typically revolves around doodling and collecting behaviours and is usually sculptural or installation-based.

                Currently in her final year in the University of Toronto’s joint Art and Art History Program with Sheridan College, Hanrath has been publicised in BUFF! magazine and has shown at several group shows with fellow students. Notably, she has shown in Yet Not a Double, at the Hazel McCallion Academic Learning Centre curated by Julia Abraham. She has also won several awards for her achievements in studio practice including: the Margaret Laidlaw Memorial Award and the Alice Rycroft Award.

                Hanrath grew up in rural Ontario and enjoys reading novels, daydreaming, hoarding, role playing, trampolining and collecting comic books. One day she will figure out people, social interaction and what to do with her life. Or maybe she’ll move to another planet.
