Sam Waldner

The art that Sam Waldner creates immediately catches the eye as textured, multidisciplinary, and layered. The pieces beg the viewer to look from corner to corner, to examine every slope and spike of paint and colour, as you never know what's hiding beneath. The work transforms photographic images into three-dimensional works of art and is based on the philosophy of integrating Jung's concept of the "anima" as a way to self-individuation. This is Waldner's journey of self-discovery and connecting to the collective unconsciousness. Waldner takes inspiration from his past experience at OCA as a student, in his professional life as a psychotherapist/addictions counsellor and through sci-fi and graphic novels.
