"Samantha daSilva (1978) is a Brazilian-born artist new to Gallery MAR in Park City. She is a third-generation artist shaped by migration, assimilation, and her desire to create. She has moved over forty times as a result of natural disasters and life circumstances. Like many who have experienced migration, she underwent a process of assimilation at the crucial age of 10, and her relationship with things was forever altered by having to leave so much behind. Her artwork has become a navigational tool that helps to connect her to new surroundings and provides a form of consistency in a life full of movement. Watch her process of creation in her Utah-based studio, filmed by Claire Wiley of Eclectic Brew Productions." Gallery MAR
