Samantha Sarvet is a painter based in Northampton, Massachusetts. She received her B.A. from Lewis & Clark College in 2014, where she studied Painting and East Asian Studies.
Her paintings address the multi-dimensional experience of color and the sensory effect of repetitive pattern. They are brightly colored, densely layered, and embrace painterly irregularity. Each painting reveals itself through layers built up over time. Repetitious form and symmetry create pattern while opacity and transparency generate depth in color. The eye sinks and resurfaces in the accumulation of layers.
