Sam Venables is a UK based artist who produces artworks that use mass cultural references and pop imagery; to make direct references to buying and selling in all its forms. She is interested in why people are drawn to things, objects or activities. Her work is driven by fandom, display and technique and occupies the space between these three things. There is a constant underlying conversation in her work about class and value. For the past decade she has worked as a visual merchandise, developing a visual language for a brand and thinking about the retail space as an exhibition space to communicate objects of value.
