Samantha Haring is a Midwest painter from Des Plaines, Illinois. She makes quiet paintings that 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’s work has been shown nationally. Recent group exhibitions include the Wet Paint MFA Biennial at the Zhou B Art Center, the Rockford Midwestern Biennial at the Rockford Art Museum, and New American Paintings: Midwest Edition at the Elmhurst Art Museum. Her work is published in issues #119 and #123 of New American Paintings as well as the Manifest International Painting Annuals 4 and 5. Haring was an Artist in Residence at Manifest Gallery from 2015- 2016. She currently lives and works in Cincinnati.

Artist Statement:
I make quiet paintings in a noisy world. My work is an intimate meditation on humble objects and the detritus of studio life. I aim to promote a reengagement with the mundane while creating a moment of reflection for the viewer.
The artist’s studio is full of memory; its history is evident in the residue layered on the walls and floor, as well as in the dusty objects scattered around the room. These remnants serve as a metaphor for the imprints people leave behind on each other and on the world. By painting forgotten corners, blank expanses, and abandoned objects, I explore the duality of absence and presence while questioning the intangibility of loss. ...

Even in silence, there is a tremendous amount of noise.
