About The Artwork

what else is there other than the release that the world brings? the dirt beneath our feet gives way with each step and the sky is an endless blue above our heads. a sea of understanding. nothing can prevent us from recognizing ourselves here. recognizing our tendencies, patterns, shortcomings— the ability to process with less stimuli. we begin to drop what we carry and open. arms outstretched, we meet truth again. a sense of possibility, of surrender; all that the world can bring us when we aren’t living in a squeezed state. be one with it all and not search for a way out. a way to run. we stand, arms open. receiving, face towards the Sun

Contact: ARTIST BIO// Sam Rueter is a mixed media artist and painter who utilizes the female form to represent a larger narrative. Born in raised just north of New York City, Sam is currently living and working in Charleston, SC and is represented by Grand Bohemian Gallery. Sam received a dual major in both Fine Arts and Arts Education at Marywood University in 2013. Her work has been shown both nationally and internationally, represented by Saatchi Art and The Other Art Fair for numerous events and exhibitions in New York City and London. She was nominated in Charleston for Best Visual Artist in 2019, and her work can be found in dozens of private collections around the globe. She has collaborated with large creative projects such as ‘I am an Artist’ with The Other Art Fair, and exhibited a live installation for The Entrepreneur’s Organization East Coast Conference. Rueter has been the featured artist on the cover of Skirt Magazine, and her work has been featured in world-renowned publications, such as Art and Antiques Magazine and World Interiors Magazine. Her figurative work has been featured in online publications such as Marie Claire, Creative Boom, The Visionary Projects, A Women’s Thing, Art Reveal Magazine and more. ARTIST STATEMENT// Manipulating the human form through acrylics, pastels and charcoal are my mediums of choice. The body can speak volumes if we are willing to become observant enough; still enough. The way one holds their body in space is an insight to a deeper narrative; an unspoken language. This body language often becomes the main concentration within my work. This communication can be a glimpse into our emotional state; a deeper understanding of who we really are. My work focuses deliberately on the female experience; a stream of narratives through both the conscious and unconscious mind. I challenge viewers to see the female form in neutral context; one where the woman validates her own space. The role of the woman is removed and reformatted through her own experience, but also longs to provoke an uncovering of deeper healing, trauma, loss, acceptance, reflection, and so on. How one presents their body can represent a larger pattern in our story; in both the collective and the deeply personal.
