Samantha Burns an interdisciplinary artist based in Southwest Florida, working with sculpture, printmaking, and installation-based practices. She received her Master of Fine Arts in Interdisciplinary Studio Art from Florida State University. Burns considers herself a composer of sorts, assembling and manipulating materials in order to create new temporal networks of dependence and dialogue. These arrangements aim to call attention to the inherent strengths and uniqueness of her objects investigating the relationships they have with one another, time, and the spaces they live in. Visually and conceptually, the sculptures examine concepts and interactions of the body mind connection focusing on the changes surrounding sudden trauma and recovery processes.

During Burns’ residency, she created Nine out of Ten / Proceed with Caution.
