Samantha Lissette exhibits regularly throughout NZ and internationally. Her work is in public and private collections across New Zealand and China. Samantha is a member of the NZ medal makers group MANZ and exhibits regularly with FIDEM International Medal Makers Congress.
Samantha’s work is primarily focused on abstraction. It explores the relationship between ‘designed’ elements in the natural world and man’s adaptation of them – merging organic and constructed ideas, exposing an innate link between the two. There is a strong narrative quality to her sculpture, questioning aspects of the human condition; often employing humour or irony, bringing a sense of playfulness and delicacy to a medium traditionally associated with weight and substance.
