S2 EP 39 - Interview with Samantha Williams-Chapelsky
Play • 44 min

Work by Canadian abstract landscape artist Samantha Williams-Chapelsky interprets landscape with color, gestures, and texture using acrylic paints to capture patterns of meaning and historical significance. She investigates the parallels between grassland crops to textile patterns, conversational meaning and emotion within a skyline, and spirituality within a landscape.

“My work primarily focuses on the depiction the landscape of Canada and specifically that of Western Canada is in a constant state of change. From weather to the effect of human presence to the pastoral landscape, idyllic in the minds of prairie dwellers, there are never ending conversations of patterns, lights, and landscape horizons. I aims to capture the relationship between the sky and ground. This stark divisional line suggests a disconnect and yet neither sky nor ground would exist without the other.”
