Monash Art Design & Architecture

Samantha Barrow’s work draws on research from sundry sources to speculate about alternative possibilities for interpreting the world through material investigations. Presented in the form of sculptural installation, the works often include elements of site specificity and duration in an attempt to enact self generated systems, through the coopting of environmental light, heat, air and condensation. She uses her hands as an organ of cognition, manipulating materials processes that oscillate between the alchemic and domestic. The works emerge from the comingled agency of material, environment and artist. Her current project focuses on the natural affinity of salt and water and their interaction with the porous surfaces of clay, lime and stone.
