We are very happy to have painter Sam Weeks joining Made in Kings Heath Open Studio Art Trail for the first time this year.
After completing a Fine Art degree at UCE in 2001 Sam explored community arts work and then worked as an art tutor at City College for a number of years. Having initially engaged in multi media live art and performance art projects her creative interests have moved to painting in recent years.
She now makes paintings and mixed media work on canvas, often in shades of blue, turquoise and orange. Although she has no consistent theme or content in her work it is usually inspired by a found object, colour swatch, textured remnant, image or emotional response – the continuity found in her work embodies her impulses to find equilibrium within composition, colour, form ,texture, light and dark, empty space and full.
“My creative process can be brief or drawn out on my journey to finding and capturing something of the elusive sense of balance and resolution“.
Sam will be exhibiting her work at 29 Brentford Road, Kings Heath – see the map below.
