About the Artist

   

Bio
Samantha Mack is a multidisciplinary artist whose work in fibers, light, painting, and film
engages with time and repetition in a continual recoding of cycles. Through the medium of crochet in particular — hybridized via image, electricity, and motion — she perpetually reorients to mortality and the infinite through an investigative studio-laboratory practice. Samantha received her B.F.A. in Art with a Minor in Professional Writing from Carnegie Mellon University in 2018, and an M.F.A. in Painting from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2022. Her MFA thesis exhibition, Through a Kaleidoscope, was exhibited in the Main Gallery at Sulfur Studios in 2022. Samantha is a Gallery Assistant and Director of Public Relations at Sulfur Studios, and Production Assistant for IMPACT Arts and Culture Magazine.

Artist Statement
 

Fibers processes bridge the arts and sciences, the technical and the sentimental. They are at once an enduring form of technology, and a generations-old means of creating and passing down warmth. As the theorist and poet Fred Moten once noted, “a quilt is like an archive that keeps you warm.” 

 Fibers also help us understand our relationship to time, both linear and cyclical. Through pattern, repetition, accumulation, and the translation of the language of fibers into other media, “Filum” examines the capacity of material processes to provide us with continuity and connection.

Gallery Opens: 5:30 pm
