Sam Sherman (b.1997) is an artist, furniture maker, and all-around fabricator. He currently resides in Baltimore Maryland where he is completing his BFA in interdisciplinary sculpture at the Maryland Institute College of Art (2020). At the moment, Sam's work mostly exists at a crossroads of sculpture and furniture making, often exploiting the forms of furniture and domestic imagery to arrive at a final composition. The work is conceptually based in the human psyche, domestic life, and the habits, dysfunctions, and quirks that come with it. While keeping this in mind, his work is inherently deeply based in the technicalities of making and precise craft.
