About the artist                        CV                        Exhibition History

Sam Mogelonsky is an emerging Toronto-based artist. She holds a BFAH from Queen’s University, (Kingston, Ontario) and an MFA from Central Saint Martin’s College of Art (London, UK). She has participated in residencies at the Florence Trust (London, UK), the Château de la Napoule Art Foundation (Mandelieu de la Napuole, France), CeRCCa (in Llorenc de Penedes, Spain) and Artscape Gibraltar Point (Toronto Islands). She has exhibited in Canada, the UK, France, Ireland, and Portugal, with exhibitions in artist-run, commercial and publicly funded galleries. Her work is held in Canadian and international collections and she is the recipient of a 2013 emerging artist grant form the Toronto Arts Council.

By using obsessive repetition of decorative elements and process-driven labour in her work, Sam attempts to challenge limits of adornment, contemporary consumption and its tendencies towards excess. Her painstakingly obsessive sculptures use embellishment to speak to notions of craft production and decoration. The physical body is referenced through arduous routine repetition used to alter her found materials. Sam's works reference ostentation and design, allude to the dual nature of pleasure and pain, while also engaging the dialogue between the mass-produced and the hand-made.
