About

Samantha Donnelly's practice is concerned with breaking down subjects and reconfiguring them in new constellations. Bringing together appropriated ephemera and quotidian materials such as magazines or cut-out photographs to produce assemblages, Donnelly reworks material remnants from various areas of contemporary culture, allowing them to dialogue and resonate within the same piece. By drawing our attention to surface and formal elements such as composition and colour, Donnelly's work often references art history, particularly Modernism and the Baroque. She amalgamates objects and images from diverse sources with humour to create configurations that are playful and quite often fragile or absurd.
