Sam Woolcott

Bisbee, AZ

Architectural elements underpin much of Woolcott’s work; she wanders Bisbee daily, observing deconstruction sites. Intrigued by the transformation of space as walls disappear and roofs are opened to the sky, a sheltered enclosure becomes exposed and vulnerable. Woolcott often works en plein-air, chronicling structures and spaces as they change. Incorporating remnants of wallpaper, linoleum and wood siding with pastels and paint, the foundations of the paintings are laid. Woolcott then returns to her studio, letting memory and material give new life to these old places.
