Artist Creates Paintings Inspired By Her Memories of The Lakes of Northern Minnesota

Samantha French is an artist from north-central Minnesota who created a series of paintings which she named Visceral Fluidity. It shows the artist’s memories of her childhood summers spent in the lakes of Northern Minnesota.

“These paintings are a link to my home and continual search for the feeling of the sun on my face and warm summer days at the lake,” French wrote on her personal website. “They are my escape, a subtle reprieve from the day-to-day. At the same time, I am drawn to an idealistic time before my own, where swim caps and wool swimsuits were commonplace. This combination of memory, observation and photography has allowed me to preserve the transitory qualities of water and remembrance.”

The artist has exhibitions all over the States, but she also likes to shares her work on her Instagram account where she has attracted over 34.2 thousand followers.
