Samantha Marwick

"When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world." John Muir

Samantha Marwick has just graduated from Gray's School of Art in contemporary art practice (Photography). Samantha's show was really delicate and beautiful, I particularly loved the music box filed with dandelion seed heads it was like stumbling on a tiny piece of magic.

It is interesting how in all of the four main degree shows in Scotland, young artists are pulling back from the noise and bustle of our modern consumerist shallow world and trying to open their and our eyes to the minute and incredible wonders of the everyday world of nature around us.
"Perspective plays a huge role in my work. Our need to control nature is futile and in a day and age where consumerism is bigger than ever I find the need to remind people of the smaller lifeforms to put into perspective the simplicity and gift of life in itself." Samantha Marwick
