Sam Haynes

Artist, Project manager, Event organiser, Community worker

I create single and multi panel artworks for public and private spaces, exploring the themes of energy and interaction. My work aims to capture the rich character of people and place within a dynamic simplicity of form. Repeated, often interactive features introduce an element of surprise and sense of play. Ultimately my work seeks to build a greater awareness of the world around us, both through meaningful engagement and an innovative approach to design. My creative process has developed out of a very community focused practice, challenging preconceptions to build a sense of pride. Collaboration remains an important aspect of my work, developing and managing interdisciplinary projects, building cross community partnerships through high quality arts. read full statement
