Samantha Holmes on bridging old and new

Artist SAMANTHA HOLMES speaks about her inspiration and the challenges of materials selection in creating two pieces, Mobile Home Moscow and Rain Greenpoint. Living and styudying in Ravenna, Italy, one of the treasure troves of Byzantine mosaics, is a boon, but Holmes' aspiration is to explore and express contemporary issues, using the materials and techniques she's learned as a touchstone, but not a capstone.
