Art at FIAF Montclair

Saint-Paul by Samia Pendleton

Currently On View

 

Discover the passionate work of photographer Samia Pendleton in her featured exhibition "Saint-Paul," a showcase of her love and fascination with the city of Old Montreal.

The photos in this series are originals taken by the artist on a visit to Old Montreal. She creates a visual representation of her emotions and feelings for the old city by capturing elements that she was drawn to during her daily walks down Rue Saint Paul and the adjacent streets. Fascinated by the beautiful historical buildings alongside modern day stores and street signs, Samia has created harmonious compositions, combining architectural elements, text, and color using multiple layers of photographs on a single page. The various elements come together to create an ethereal look that evokes a spiritual feeling.

Opening Reception
Fri, Mar 23, from 6–7pm
Preview the exhibition, meet the artist, and enjoy wine and French snacks.

About the Artist

Samia Pendleton is a Pakistani American visual artist. Influenced by her mother who is a painter, and the haute couture fashion of the 90’s she studied art and fashion at Parsons School of Design in New York and Paris. Her love and passion for traveling and exploring new cultures inspire her to create works of art that present a visual representation of emotions and feelings that cannot be expressed by words. Rather, they reflect places that capture her curiosity through color and composition. A concept she loves to explore is the connection between old architectural structures and contemporary graphic design. Her work, The Doha Project, was based on this idea and was exhibited in Doha, Qatar in 2010. Pendleton currently works as a photographer in New York and New Jersey.
