Endless Supply features Xerox drawings, collages, and objects derived from printmaking techniques to discuss transmission and boundless narratives. Vernon explores drawing as
technology and questions how the image is transformed when it is reproduced as direct digital media.

The active “ghosting” of an image, copying and multiplying the original, subtly exploits the notion of a pure identification of black and white and signifies the essentialism of symbolic meaning and all its associations.
About Sam Vernon

Sam Vernon, featured on Huffington Post’s “30 Contemporary Art Makers Under 40 You Should Know,” uses installation and performance to confront questions concerning personal narrative, historical memory and identity. Sam earned her MFA in Painting/Printmaking from Yale University in 2015 and her BFA from The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in 2009. Vernon has most recently exhibited with San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art, G44 Centre for Contemporary Photography, We Buy Gold, Interstitial Gallery, Coney Art Walls curated by Jeffrey Deitch, Brooklyn Museum, Queens Museum, Fowler Museum at UCLA and Seattle Art Museum.
