About

Sam Lock trained at Edinburgh University and Art College, graduating with an MA Fine Art Painting and MA History of Art in 1997.  He is represented by Wimbledon Fine Art, Cadogan Contemporary, Four-Walls and Jenna Burlingham Fine Art.

Each painting is 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; a visual poetry.

They are individual characters, each painting a unique collection of elements that combine to suggest some kind of story-without-words through the tone of their imagery, colours and movement.  They are incomplete, like memories half recalled, stories with no fixed ending, open-ended.  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.  They whisper suggestions, hints, intrigues….. each piece a mystery to be solved, a contradiction that is at once solid and substantial yet elusive, fleeting.
