Sam Lock  

1973, lives and works in Brighton

 

He studied art and art history at the University of Edinburgh. During his training, he won a scholarship to stay in Rome, and investigates the relationship between history, archaeology and painting. All of his works are an exploration, a journey between and through layers, a build-up of moments in time and intuitions followed. The alchemy of the painting process transforms time spent into a physical and tangible history that can be read as colour, texture, shape, structure. They are an invitation to become lost and tangled in their surface, to find something new each time you look and hold the gaze, to make a connection with the senses, paintings you feel.
