Sam Lock

Cadogan Contemporary is delighted to present Now/here, a solo exhibition featuring new work by the acclaimed British artist Sam Lock.

 

A key inspiration for Lock is the written word, in particular the work of the dramatists Samuel Beckett and Harold Pinter. As the latter famously said, ‘Underneath what is said, something else is being said,’ and the ideas invoked in that observation – notions of double meanings, loss, discovery and the overlapping of past and present – are key to understanding Lock’s entire oeuvre; in essence, each work is a mediation on the ambiguities of life revealed through abstraction.
