Sam Haynes is a mid-career visual artist based in London, working primarily with sculpture and site specific installations. She launched her new series of assemblage photo artworks at the beginning of 2021, with online/IRL exhibitions including the Fair Art Fair ‘Curated 1’ show at Unit 1 Gallery in London, the FLUX exhibition in the Greenwich Design District and ‘Abstract: Contemporary Art Open’ at Surface Gallery, Nottingham. Artwork has been featured in ‘Art Reveal’, ‘Heroes of Tomorrow’ and ‘Artist Talk’ magazines, with an artist interview in 2021 for the Ministry of Arts Podcast.
Sam Haynes started her practice over twenty-five years ago creating public art installations, engaging local communities with the belief that art has the power to bridge divides within society. The creative process is still all about making connections, within her practice as an artist facilitator, as well as a collaborator and sculptor. Accessibility lies at the heart of Haynes’ work, incorporating found objects and materials, using low tech methods of construction to create abstract assemblages that reference domestic and architectural space. The photographic process is a key element of Haynes’ sculptural practice, both in its development and display.
