Samantha Hobson, now aged in her late thirties, remains essentially an action painter using pure colour pigments and high gloss estapols.  Her practice is concerned less with traditional Indigenous design and more with artistic expressions of life and an immediate responsiveness to her physical environment. The artist’s dramatic style often harnesses cultural tensions as she explodes such narratives into vivacious representations.

Samantha is unlike most artists of her generation or geography. Her method of painting is mostly about risk taking, toying with colour and gravity, energy and saturation. Many of these works are modest in size, painted in her Cairns studio, augmented by some key large works painted in recent Brisbane workshops.
