Samantha Walrod (University of Alberta MFA ’13) is a collage artist, painter and educator living in Edmonton Alberta. Her work can be found in various private collections across Canada, including the AFA Collection.
Walrod is best known for her figurative or still life collages, which are depictions of animal/human encounters or depictions of flowers in vases that wilt. Each body of work speaks to hope, loss, decay and the passage of time.
In response to the ubiquity of digital imagery, tactility is very important to the artist’s practice. Images are incorporated with collage and digital technologies, while maintaining the intimacy of the artist’s hand and the exploration of paint.
