Samantha Birt

I am a collage artist, film maker and choreographer. I was born in London and I currently live in Northern Italy.

My collages are made using magazines, recycled papers, old books, some dating back to the 1930s.

Most of my inspiration is tied to those fragments of paper, I am attracted because they contain other stories, sometimes complex, intriguing. The lines, the shapes, the combination of textures, colors and shadows, offer intense and rich ideas, that I use as a basis for the realization of my "stories", new stories, journeys in and out of the subconscious. A piece of paper is, for me, like a piece of life, a feeling, an emotion ... each collage becomes open window onto a timeless world.
