Red Reef 1 – About the artist: SAMANTHA HOBSON

Born: 1981 Lockhart River QLD
Region: Eastern Cape York Peninsula
Language group: Kuuku Y’au
Lives and works: Cairns, QLD

Samantha Hobson first appeared on the contemporary art scene in the late 1990s as one of the more prominent members of the newly established Far North Queensland’s renowned Lockhart River ‘Art Gang’. A small and remote community, Lockhart River is located eight hundred kilometres north of Cairns on the Eastern Cape York Peninsula. Growing up, she experienced traditional life – such as camping, fishing, gathering berries – within and around the Lockhart River, Claudie River, Quintell Beach, Chilli Beach, Great Barrier Reef, and the Iron Range (Kutini-Payamu) National Park.

More recently, Hobson has been living and working in Cairns as well as completing private and corporate commissions in Brisbane studios. Her paintings continue to reflect both traditional stories and contemporary themes associated with cultural, social and environmental concerns. Thick layering of paints with bright marine colours are used to reflect Hobson’s memories of life on the reef with the fish flashing past, the coral, the sea grass and the shallow water fading to deep. For the rainforest, majestic greens are used as background with multi-colour linear representations of vines and creeks as foreground.

Hobson’s works are currently held in private and public collections both nationally and internationally including National Gallery of Australia, National Gallery of Victoria, Cairns Regional Gallery, University of Queensland Art Museum, Queensland University of Technology Art Museum, International Education Services (IES), Artbank, The Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection of the University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia, USA and Columbus State University, Georgia, USA.
