Samantha’s work primarily focuses on the depiction of the Canadian landscape. The landscape of Canada and specifically that of Western Canada is in a constant state of change. From weather to the effect of human presence to the pastoral landscape, idyllic in the minds of prairie dwellers, there are never ending conversations of patterns, lights, and landscape horizons. She aims to capture the relationship between the sky and ground. This stark divisional line suggests a disconnect and yet neither sky nor ground would exist without the other. This balance of space defined by the horizon line is the simple definition of the Canadian landscape. By sketching and painting the views of Alberta and British Columbia from life, and transferring these ideas to larger scale canvas’ and boards, she documents the shifting movement of the clouds and weather patterns with gestural brushwork, thick uses of both oil and acrylic paint and vivid color. Samantha aims to capture the landscape not as a mimetic depiction, but as a gestural interpretation of the movement of the land itself, and its ever fluctuating subtleties of the natural, urban, growth, desolation, and regrowth.
