Artist bio

Samantha Patrick is a self taught artist who works primarily with acrylics. She discovered her passion for art later in life than many artists, and now cannot imagine life without painting. What was once a spare bedroom with a clean floor, is now a gloriously splattered studio and she wouldn’t have it any other way!

Artist Statement

Abstract represention of the human torso showcasing the spine. Literal and figurative. Fluid art background shows the general shape including scapulas. The veins and cells of colour show the multi layered human experience. Blue, green, white, gold, black...ocean, earth, heavens, human sprit, abyss. External armour can crack and corrode...inner strength is key.

How it fits into contest

Figurative armour is the theme of “Backbone”. Figurative external armour may protect us but it can also isolate us. Literal external armour may protect us but is no measure of the person underneath. Inner strength is what prepares us for the battles of life.
