Sam Marshall

Sam Marshall is a London based photographer and artist. Marshall's work is concerned with the aesthetic re-interpretation of beauty, changing context and creating a new focus for the viewer that encourages them to re-interpret the world around them.

Marshall translates the fundamental essence of abstraction into photographic practice, experimenting with graphic images of abstracted reality and texture. This mode of aesthetic expression explores the essence of our contemporary surroundings and urban culture, and is presented in a direct and powerful way to engage the viewer beyond the realms of the visual alone.

The artist affords the images ambiguity, which in turn opens them up to new meanings, new ways of being perceived and new ways for them to communicate with the viewer.

Marshall approaches his work in original and unorthodox ways, working across a broad spectrum of medias, mixing painting and photography to deliver powerful, gritty but beautiful images of our contemporary environments, capturing a sense of urban anxiety but at the same time celebrating the results.
