«It’s Okay, Little Crab (Sensory Overload)» Oil on Canvas by Samantha Van Heest

$ 3,500
  • Description
    It’s Okay, Little Crab (Sensory Overload) in a way feels like a self portrait, with the vacuum acting as a personified vision of time and societal expectation. The vacuum may never reach the crab, but its loud and disturbing presence will.

    Samantha Van Heest explores the intimacy of impermanence through her work, utilizing still life, found objects, and portraiture through minimalist representation. Her paintings and drawings act as a visual catalogue for her memories, a secure physical representation of how she remembered a moment. Van Heest romanticizes the minutiae of everyday life, and seeks to communicate the monumental impact of ephemera by visually referencing select objects that symbolize what it felt to be within the scene. Through this examination of memory, Van Heest also explores herself as a multiracial woman, her femininity, and her experience processing intense emotions such as grief and trauma.

    Samantha Van Heest's work is both personal and universal, a representation of self that unfolds to tell a unique and personal story to each viewer. She wants to discuss memory, how it defines the self, and how something so crucial to the makeup of our lives walks the line between reality and fiction.
