'Hypnosis' Exhibition by Samantha Thompson

'Hypnosis' Exhibition by Samantha Thompson

This exhibition of Samantha Thompson’s recent mixed media work displays two collections, "Hypnosis" and "Two Head Series".

Hypnosis is a human condition involving the focus of attention, reduced peripheral awareness, and an enhanced capacity to respond to suggestion. In this new mixed-media series Samantha draws us in and asks quiet questions. Hypnosis is a reflection and celebration of the individual. Inherently female and suggestive, the series uses many forms of media, specialty paper, printmaking, painting and ink/pastel, to bring us closer. The many layer and influences are represented of our memories and shared humanness, they weave and bang their way together to form the final piece, a kaleidoscope of energies and experiences.

Samantha’s Two Heads series explores our public and private persona, how our projected self is portrayed, often at the expense of our real authentic self. Made using traditionally domestic materials, these sculptures have no purpose but to remind us to be ourselves, and to be fearless in public.
