Sam Vicary

Sam Vicary

Initially exploring the ‘taming of birds’ through my paintings, I have begun using photography and short bursts of film to examine the form and substance of their eggs. Last Spring friends collected empty eggshells donating them in handmade boxes stuffed with lamb’s wool and recycled tissue. These eggshells and cases have been filmed and it is my intention to use them to inform future paintings.
