Collection: Samantha Dickie

Samantha is a Victoria-based contemporary ceramic artist, using elements of abstract expressionism and minimalist sculpture within an installation practice. She prioritizes the natural beauty of imperfection, and intentionally preserve the raw, visceral and tactile beauty of clay through textural surfaces and abstract forms. Aesthetics of simplicity, multiplicity and un-adornment are purposefully articulated to draw attention to subtle aspects of the work, the encapsulated space inside forms, and the relationships formed between objects. Her practice includes attending various residencies in Canada and abroad; receiving national and provincial grants to create large scale projects for exhibition in public galleries across Canada, as well as teaching workshops and presenting at provincial conferences such as the Canadian Clay Symposium in B.C and the Fusion conference in Ontario.
