Samara Scott

Sculpture - Shortlisted 2013

Describing her work as ‘a layered visual nostalgic cocktail’ Samara’s installations are highly orchestrated affairs where the over sensory is fused with intrinsic subtle details using a host of elements including design, fashion and food.

She approaches her work from a highly contemporary consumers perspective, devouring information, stimulation and references in a wanton manner and operating them with a liquidity and absent mindedness that recalls pop arts’ emergence in 50’s. Through employing painterly genre in a thematic way the work chooses juicy effects and bruised saturation over craft - absolutely embracing paintings’ fear of becoming décor. Surroundings curdle and Sculpture oozes onto and pollutes surface.

Slipping between infusions of nature and artificial imitation, antiquity and plasticity, synthetic import and organic craft class; the materiality mish mashes a trickled down Art History into an interior language of disposable nostalgia and melancholy. There’s a certain slippiness. An uncomfortable eroticism and mastication between textures, products, fashion and style. An associative membrane, a dense scenery or mood board of shapes, smells, forms and materials.
