Sam Holmes 'Elegua' 2007©

Sam Christian Holmes was born on the east end of Long Island, New York, and currently resides in Baltimore. He received both bachelor of fine arts (B.F.A.) and master of fine arts (M.F.A.) degrees from MICA. In working with metal, Holmes attempts to access his cultural and personal history on several levels. He said, “It’s more the issues of recycling of materials (tin used in earlier works) or the utilitarian nature of the gate form (in later works) that suggest boundaries of symbolic communities and storytellers of folklore and personal memory.”
