Samantha draws inspiration from her surroundings. Living in the affectionately dubbed “Garden City” (aka Singapore), her work is her own abstract take on the buildings and the lush, tropical greenery of Singapore. Using a combination of gestural, impulsive movements, layering and detailed work, Samantha has a style that is all her own.
In the words of the artist...
“They’ve just sort of evolved. Maybe I can trace it back to college days… a big part of my A Level work was city photography. I love architecture and its effect on the psyche and I loved capturing it in images. But I hadn’t put it on canvas until now. Here, the jungle is always just being kept at bay and can creep in at any moment. I love that.
"I like exploring how the jungle is never far from the city, a character always creeping in. I haven’t populated my cityscape paintings with figures yet, but I already see humanity present in the structures. To me it’s been more about the clash and conversation between the wild jungle and the urban landscape.” ~ Samantha Redfern
Arty-Fact: “In Singapore it gets light and dark at the same time all year round. We do have sunrise and sunset skies but they are nothing like the ones we get back home in the UK. The best thing about painting is I can just make anything I want. The possibilities are endless. I’ve always had a vivid imagination and I often write poetry and have written a few children’s stories too. My children used to demand I make one up on the spot for their bedtime story. Children definitely keep your imagination alive. I love to bring a sense of narrative and creativity into my paintings.” ~ Samantha Redfern
