Samantha Morris

Brooklyn, New York

Samantha Morris uses both graphite and cyanotype on paper, to recreate the experience of an individual traveling through a space.

Samantha Morris was born in 1995 and grew up Madison, Connecticut; she now lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.

Morris graduated from The University of the Arts in 2017 with a BFA in Fine Arts with an emphasis in Painting and Drawing. Currently, she is continuing her graduate studies in the MFA Fine Arts program at Pratt Institute. Solo exhibitions include: Kanna Rými, Listhús Gallery in Ólafsfjörður, Iceland. Selected group exhibitions include Black and White, Site:Brooklyn, Paperworks, b.j spoke gallery and Space Invaders, Fountain Street Gallery among others. Morris’ work has been published in FreshPaint Magazine, Opción Magazine and ArtMaze Magazine.

Exploring place through architecture, interiors, and plant life, Samantha is fascinated by the feeling of light and its stillness. Her work is derived both from public encounters and constructed environments. Through the labor intensive mark-making process, an internal light emerges from the work. The drawings challenge one’s own perception of space, where subtle tonality is reflected through illuminated walls encapsulated by darkness. By questioning both specificity and ambiguity, the work exists in the in-between.

To Samantha, art is an expression of intuition, energy, and devotion.
