Sam Ainsley: Stories Real and Imagined

3 September - 2 October 2022

The Royal Scottish Academy is pleased to present Sam Ainsley: Stories Real and Imagined this September. Including large-scale paintings, collage works and limited-edition prints, the exhibition will feature recently created works, as well as some drawn from Ainsley’s rich back catalogue.

Sam Ainsley approaches her work as a form of ‘emotional mapping’ which looks to uncover relationships between natural phenomena, the human body and the human condition. She is interested in the correspondences and disjunctions between the natural and man-made world. Influenced by feminism, film, politics and poetry, Ainsley’s work often considers ‘how we might bridge the gap between women’s experience of the world and that of men’.
