Samantha Thomas' artistic practice is unique and idiosyncratic. Restraining herself to a palette of raw canvas, thread and acrylic paint, Thomas' work explores the play between common studio materials and abstraction. Jagged extrusions, folded thresholds and frenetically woven strands of thread transform her canvases into paintings that are, at once, physical, architectural and sculptural. While each piece defies the flatness of the canvas, her work still speaks to the language and legacy of painting and drawing.
