Painting | Utah Artists - D

Samantha daSilva

Having traveled extensively and acquired (nearly) three citizenships, daSilva’s paintings are a visual narrative of unrelenting feminine power and the exploration of the universal experiences of abandonment, heritage and the eternal sense of home. Against the remarkable backdrop of the American West – a place as fierce as it is exquisite – daSilva navigates her paintings with ritual, grace and quiet force. daSilva infuses her environment into her work using: iron-rich Utah dirt, salt from the Great Salt Lake, plaster, repurposed paint, metallic pigments and local newspaper to create ethereal, textured abstracts.
