Margarita Sampson

Margarita Sampson has an art practice spanning sculpture, installation and jewellery, deeply embedded in a love of the systems & structures of the natural world. After graduating with a M.A in painting from UNSW, Margarita turned to object and sculpture, making her first sculptural work for the inaugural Sculpture by the Sea in 1997 (and subsequently exhibiting with them another 12 times) & winning awards like Hillview Sculpture Award (Indoor works) 2018 and The Waterhouse Art Prize (Object)2012, and being selected for the Wynne Prize 2013, the Blake Prize for Religious Art 2016, as well as a Churchill scholarship for Contemporary Jewelery in 2010. Margarita works across materials as diverse as wood, steel, silver, fibreglass, resin, textiles, electronics, plastics & found objects, and loves investigating their properties and their secret super powers!
