Samara Scott creates remote and other worldly environments that reflect an age of consumption and waste. She employs products purchased on the high street, forming compositions both abstract and everyday, with a gross materiality running through them. The implied consumption has a foot in both our real and virtual worlds.
Lonely Planet II exhibited at Frieze utilizes these materials to produce a work that is essentially a living organism, a petri dish hosting a painterly collision of Claire’s Accessories, pound stores, foods and pigments. Tese elements become both familiar and alien; from a distance the work has a hazy beauty with splashes of colour sitting within a shimmering surface. Up close, the composition reveals an explosion of toxic components. Scott’s works are immersive landscapes that spill into the spaces they occupy. As such, the booth will consist of one installation rather than a series of works, nestled into the fabric of the fair itself.
