OUTSIDE THE ZONE GALLERY

Sam King

Sam’s aesthetic is a surreal exploration of underling themes such as philosophy of the mind, ontology and art history. His work is self-effacing, challenging western concepts like the separation of mind and body as urged by figures such as Descartes in his famous cogito.

King’s practice investigates the body as an interface between sacred and profane realms. His work challenges personal and social inertia by propounding a corporeal  experience that conveys both sensuality and abjection.

Using interplay of colour and monochrome to suggest different levels of sensation, along with impasto technique to mimic the carnality of the body. his works invites a visceral intellectual response.
