Sam Smith

Sam Smith by Paul Colley

Sam Smith

Back to The Collective

Sam Smith predominately uses paint and ink to create large and dymnamic images. His work has been included in several exhibitions including a solo show at the Black Shed Gallery.  Sam is an artist of instinct whose practice is led by his sensory investigations of the world around him. Over time, Sam has developed a unique understanding of a wide range of different materials and processes which he applies in his own unique style. His signature squeeze paintings are made with swift yet considered moves, often overworked using brushes and pens which capture the full range of his mark making.
