Samantha Haring is a Midwest painter from Des Plaines, Illinois. Her work is an intimate meditation on humble objects and the detritus of studio life. Haring uses her studio as subject matter to discuss the nature of loss and the inherent duality of absence and presence.
Haring earned her MFA from Northern Illinois University (2014) and her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2011). She has also studied in Italy at the International School of Drawing, Painting, and Sculpture; it was there that she fully developed her commitment to light, color, and observational painting. Haring received a scholarship from the Union League Club in Chicago in 2013. Her paintings have been exhibited across the country, most recently in the “Art of Painting” exhibition juried by William Bailey. Haring’s work is included in the Manifest International Painting Annuals 4 and 5; her work will be published in the upcoming 2015 Midwest issue of New American Paintings. She is currently an Artist in Residence at Manifest Gallery in Cincinnati.
Here is one of seven paintings that are now in the Randall Frank Contemporary Art Collection.
