Samara Adamson-Pinczewski lives and works in Melbourne, Australia. She received a Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) from Monash University in 1998, a Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) (Honours) from RMIT University in 1999, a Graduate Diploma in Education (Visual Art) from the University of Melbourne in 2001, a Master of Fine Art (Research) from the Victorian College of the Arts in 2003, and a PhD from the School of Art, RMIT University in 2013.
She has held nine solo shows since 2000, including eight in Melbourne and one solo exhibition in Sydney. She has also participated in forty-eight group exhibitions locally, nationally and internationally since 1998. In 2013, Samara was the recipient of the Sam & Adele Golden Foundation for the Arts Residency Program in New Berlin, New York, USA. Two exhibition catalogues detailing her recent paintings were published in 2013 and 2014.
Samara's practice focuses on the relationship between geometric abstract painting, architecture and urban space. Her paintings, drawings and studio-based installations explore ambiguous spatial readings created through the use of reflective materials, fragmented abstract forms and oblique linear structures.
