Oil Paintings by South Devon artist Chris Sampson
I paint for myself and am driven by the will to become more accomplished. To this end I strive to make each painting, in some way, more difficult than the one before.
I would find no satisfaction in the pursuit of a formulaic style and enjoy the challenge presented by differing subjects.
My choice of subject is based on enthusiasms I might wish to revisit, and ultimately share through painting.
How I dislike the notion of the "Artist's Statement". So difficult to avoid the self-conscious and pretentious.
I take pleasure in adopting one from my erstwhile art-school colleague and Devon art-teacher John Upton.
"I paint what I like, When I like, how I like."
Paintings are oil on framed canvas unless otherwise indicated. Dimensions exclude frame. Prices are ex-studio.
