Samantha Kaplan is a New York-based contemporary abstract landscape artist with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Drawing and Painting and a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre Arts from the State University of New York at New Paltz. She has had her work exhibited at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, Gallarus Arts Fine Art Gallery, the Katonah Museum of Art in New York, and at the Bruce Museum in Greenwich, Connecticut.
Samantha paints abstract landscape paintings of the energy in nature as a way to celebrate the life and forces that exist on our planet. Her ultimate mission is for her work to radiate light and a divine energy in people’s homes by capturing the beauty that exists in nature throughout the planet. She hopes her paintings will help people appreciate the small, beautiful details in life, whether it’s a wave crashing in the ocean, or taking a moment to notice the smell of flowers blooming on a spring day. Her work is inspired by places she has experienced throughout her life, as she has traveled around the world.
Taking inspiration from big names such as Claude Monet, Joan Mitchell, Sargent, and Edgar Degas, Samantha’s work uses jewel-tones in contrast with subtle natural colors to generate a feeling of serenity, allowing people appreciate the beauty of our planet has created, and through that inspire people to make a beautiful change in this world.
