ARTIST INFO

The beauty of painting as image, then played out with dreams and thoughts that oscillate through materials and application to bring together a ‘state or space’ that allows the viewer to be at one, to be taken away to a lucid world. Sam Jackson  
 
"Whenever I reflect on Sam Jackson’s work there’s something tantalisingly insoluble – strange to say – but I’m never quite sure if I’ve dreamt them. An infectious form of collective amnesia perhaps?  
Ultimately these paintings are lamentations for the passing of youth, the ineluctable passage of time and the attendant weight of that anxiety. A way, perhaps, of assuaging the creeping and unpleasant suspicion that our best years may be behind us? The familiar constantly rendered unfamiliar by the sheer density of life."  Graham Crowley
