Drawings by Sam Vernon

Check out these drawings and installations by Sam Vernon. She incorporates pen and ink, xerox, textiles, and found object into her various pieces. Her concepts are rooted in history, memory, and personal narrative. 


I'm captivated by how her pieces always start with drawings. Then those drawings are xeroxed and drawn over and xeroxed again etc... The original drawings are present in her final large installations. I think that keeps them fresh and the immediacy in tact through the entire production process. This sort of gives her installations a genuine feeling that is especially important given the concepts she's portraying.
