Samantha Dickie

Samantha Dickie is an artist from Victoria BC and describes herself as a “contemporary ceramic artist, focused on abstract expressionism and minimalist sculpture within an installation practice.” Samantha explores themes of duality and reclamation, containment and contemplation. The multiple pieces of her installations convey a very different feeling depending on their arrangement and the spaces in which they are placed. She gathers inspiration from the different locations her work is shown in and the environment that surrounds her. Her thoughtful approach to installation work; the form that it takes; and her willingness to be open to spontaneous insights from observers. The objects are familiar, maybe reminding us of stones or sea plants, something we have seen before, held, experienced, or imagined; but taken out of context through the use of scale, placement, and surface, they draw attention to the themes she is exploring and our own reaction to them. Samantha will demonstrate some mould making as well as discuss the use of moulds to make individual pieces that can then be altered.
