Sam Smyth Biography:

Sam Smyth is a UK based artist best known for his hard-edged geometric paintings and collages. He uses abstraction as a vehicle to explore light, pure form and the act of looking. Drawing on the ideas of minimalist and post painterly abstract painting from the 60s and 70s, Sam’s work has a focus on visual perception and colour interaction. Working in series; Sam employs formal organizing principles to his work; often pursuing a geometric framework across several works. This can be seen in his square compositions and also in various works in 2 x 3 and 3 x 4 format.

Sam studied art & design at Weston college & Arts University Bournemouth. In 2017/18 Sam undertook two commissions in the USA; for AC hotels in New York and a private collector in Del Mar, California. He was shortlisted for the Artworks Open prize 2018 and has work in several private collections. His next exhibition will be at Scratch Labs: an artist led residency at Caraboo projects space in Bristol.
