San Francisco based artist Isabel Samarasʼ work is a form of visual storytelling that is witty, mysterious, and tender. Her painted narratives are classical in technique and pop in content, revolving around issues of secret love, unrequited lust and making things end the way we wish they would.

Best known for lush and meticulously painted riffs on Old Masters that send up pop culture icons of the ’70s, her ribald images are woven with references to classic horror movies, ancient mythology, cheesy television, and childhood fables.
