Samantha Sherry

Germantown, TN

Samantha frequently uses equine imagery in her work, although her creations are not simply about painting “pretty ponies.” “Horses have always been my point of entry into the world, a way of framing, questioning, understanding, connecting, and commemorating,” she explains. Within her work the horse is symbolic, and provides the distance and vocabulary necessary for her to explore deeply personal issues and motifs. Samantha’s work examines the relationships between memory, family, identity, and loss. Drawing upon her equestrian past (and present), horse forms and fragments become the language through which these ideas are explored and articulated.
