He studied art and art history at the University of Edinburgh. During his training, he won a scholarship to stay in Rome, and investigates the relationship between history, archaeology and painting. All of his works are an exploration, a journey between and through layers, a build-up of moments in time and intuitions followed. Sam Lock’s his works show a dispute with the working process itself: it is about capturing the moment marked by a gesture. Thereby, the direct and intuitive process of drawing becomes crucial for him. He explores the two-dimensional as well as the three-dimensional space and uses a great variety of techniques and material. Due to a huge variation in gestures, which not only appear on the pictures but also on and through the sculptures, Sam Lock´s works possesses a highly dynamic and expressive character.
