SAM BANISTER ARTIST
“Poetic abstraction rendered with innovative and masterful technique”
Sam’s work has a visual depth which draws you in, a lyrical balance between representation and abstraction. The surface of the paper melds with the apparent randomness of the natural world. Rather than prosaically portraying a landscape, her work focuses on the microcosms within the landscape, capturing the rhythm and beauty of nature’s linear and less seen aspects. The imagery resonates with dreamily half remembered scenes, powerfully depicted with complex textures, bold contrasts and sumptuous colours. Like a poetic ballad each work engages your imagination in a perpetual challenge to discover the meaning.
