Samantha Palmeri Contemporary Artist

"Samantha's work is so beautiful but somehow made me feel uneasy. The tangles, the tie-ups, the struggles of life which seem to be expressed in her braided, knotted bundles are represented in such a beautiful palette that none of it seems insurmountable. The bundles are at once those moments of uncertainty wrapped in the comfort of just letting the thing be. Not every tangle with a situation or another being is a bad thing, nor should every knot be undone. Life gets messy and that is okay."  -Katie Schmidt Feder, Director Garrison Art Center
