Sam was born in London and studied at Edinburgh University and Art College graduating with an MA Fine Art Painting and MA History of Art in 1997. After teaching for 15 years he now lives and works full time as a painter in Brighton. He recently exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, 'Drawn' at the RWA Bristol and the Discerning Eye show at the Mall Galleries. Sam describes his abstract work in the following way: "My paintings are characterized by raw freedom and energy, an abstract poetry, oxidised and weathered surfaces combined with elusive tones and beautiful layered colour. They are mysterious suggestions across which the eye and mind can wander, spaces to become lost in invitations to dream."
We invite you to come and dream with us. Contact the gallery to join us for the opening event on the 13th September.
