SAM LARTER utilises ordinary everyday domestic items in her creative practice, feeling the need to abandon the traditional stretched canvas for items connected with domestic use.
“I am drawn to these everyday items through colour, pattern or function. My work refers to the everyday and to the blurring between my life and my production of art. I like to concentrate on using mass produced, cheap, obtainable and reusable items. Items that are the tools in our daily domestic rituals in the pursuit of perfect domestication”.
The personal input in the production of her work comes from working in jobs that have required repetitive tasks to be carried out; such as a cleaner, retail assistant, office assistant and factory worker. Sam is interested in the repetitive activity involved as well as order, function and what is considered mundane.
