Sam M Harley is a practicing artist and curator based in Glasgow. She graduated in 2020 from the Painting and Printmaking department at The Glasgow School of Art. In 2021, she graduated with a Masters in Curatorial Practice.
My practice explores the idea of thingness and how the art object and the typical object function alongside each other. There is a tension between the traditional high-fi nature of paint and the low-fi everyday objects. I use the familiarity of the everyday to give the viewer something recognisable, yet through the addition of paint, it elevates the everyday into something new.
