Oil Paintings by South Devon artist Chris Sampson SWAc

Mail black large


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.
