Sam Lock lives and works in Brighton. His paintings contain surfaces built up over time and through approaches and material choices, where layers, scratches, colours, stains, marks, floods, remnants and hints co-exist. His processes of painting are built around remembering, losing, forgetting and rediscovering the creative choices he has made.
What place in the world has inspired you?
My paintings are accumulations of materials and decisions; artefacts of thinking and doing, an attempt to locate poetry in the relationships, combinations and interactions between materials and physical elements.
