Inside

Samara Scott

MA work

Restless processes direct work through a series of ranges, photographs slip towards film, props migrate into sculptures. An archaeological experiment begins; rummaging for the harmonies between man-made and natural, mingling pairings of alchemous surfaces.


Applying classicist pattern and ‘decor’, we set sail on a field trip, a glitzy cruise, a tropical safari; looking into gestures we give to waterfalls and sunsets, and the icons that man carves for himself.


From this, a chocolaty union of glamour and vomit emerges. Below the juicy garnishes and the sexy textures, we encounter a troubled message; the Universe considered a vast biblical drama through the molecular corrosion of the laboratory.
