Paintings

ENQUIRE

Sam Lock is a contemporary British painter exploring the rhythms and currents of painting, creating a journey between and through layers, a build-up of moments in time and intuitions followed. Sam is represented by the talent agency, MTArt. Sam paints viscerally. As well as the brush, he uses blowtorches and electric sanders on his oil paintings, wearing their surfaces down in a repeated process of building and destruction. At its core, his work conveys the passage of time; colours, movement and places that are half-recalled or uncertain. Sam sees his paintings as each having a character, which he explores in the relationships between layers of media, the creation of tensions and interactions that evidence the intuitive processes he followed in their creation.

Lock’s paintings are found in collections in the UK and abroad and he has exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts and has produced commissioned paintings for the Marine Bay Sands Hotel in Singapore and the newly developed Penthouse suite at Battersea Power Station.
