Samantha Catron is a painter currently working in Richmond, Va. With roots along the coast of North Carolina throughout Appalachia she has been influenced to seek revolution in the day-to-day through integrating a deeper consciousness and defying social norms.
Particularly working with acrylic, gouache, and oil paint she thrives on experimentation and exploring the raw process of creating composition with a focus on boldness and contradiction.
She is a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University where she studied International Relations and Religious Studies. Emphasizing how different ideas and paradigms can inform her art, she explores shifts in perspective through dimension and form. By intertwining politics, spirituality, and aesthetics she challenges herself to use art as an expression of activism and empathy.
She was most recently a member of The Silos Artist Collective in Richmond, VA. She has exhibited work at Artemis Gallery, the Biennial Juried exhibition at ArtSpace Gallery, ArtWorks All-Media Group Juried show, and has completed several commissioned murals amongst many canvas paintings. Her work is showcased in private collections throughout the United States and Brazil.
