Samantha Sand-holmes

Samantha works across sculpture installation and painting, the images she makes challenge the power of the seen in favour of the moment between the unseen, giving the work an uneasy edge.

The work evokes solitude, demonstrating the palpable density of empty space, suggesting the creative potential of self imposed isolation, giving the viewer space to work setting up tension in the stillness of a moment that has past, or about to happen, or the tension left lingering after a powerful event

Samantha has exhibited widely across the UK and is a member of the Newlyn society of artists. She has a first class degree from Falmouth art college, where she has since lectured in sculpture. She has won various awards and been commissioned to produce sculptures for the eden project and other prestigious venues.
