Samara Scott was born in London in 1984, where she lives and works.
Scott approaches her work from a highly contemporary consumers perspective, devouring information, stimulation and references in a wanton manner and operating them with a liquidity and absent mindedness that recalls pop arts’ emergence in 50’s. Through employing painterly genre in a thematic way the work chooses juicy effects and bruised saturation over craft – absolutely embracing paintings’ fear of becoming décor.
