A self-taught emerging artist with an affinity for colour and shape, Sammi Carr’s work is experimental, spontaneous and draws on the compositional makeup of the world around her.
Her artistic process is expressive, emotional and explorative, calling on memory, photographs, sketches and environmental stimuli.
Through painting, drawing, collage and writing, she is particularly interested in exploring the layers of the individual and collective human condition, with an ongoing emphasis on the necessity for ‘play’ at all levels of life.
It is the automatic spontaneity, an approach observed in Surrealist practices that expresses the connection between the visual (external) and unconscious or emotional (internal). This is the ultimate essence of play; freedom to express, explore, understand your body, your mind, your energy.
She works with acrylic and oil paint, illustration and multimedia collage.
