Samantha Cicak

I am string weaver & botanical alchemist.

A storyteller,forest wanderer, tumbleweed, stargazer & gypsy.

A working traveller, dreamer, musician and dancer.

My work combines the visual and written poetics of the earth using ecologically sustainable materials such as cloth, paper, stone, biological material, water, minerals, bones, the discarded artefacts and hard detritus of human habitation and the local weed burden.

I collect and fossick while in roam in paddocks, sandy beaches, amongst the forests where I am submerged in deep ecology which is my guiding force for inspiration.

Every piece begins with a walk...

When the opportunity arises I undertake residencies making work that is specific to place.”
