Sam Marsh… Swampman!


The energy in the work of Sam Marsh comes from his direct approach to material application and visual imagery. The work for his show We All Want The Swamp is a metaphor for his imagination, the painting process and mass culture. More recently Polyrhythmic Snarl at Unit 56 Stroud, includes collaborative work with artist Edward Lawrenson, where paintings have been passed back and forth between Marsh and Lawrenson to explore collaboration in its purest form. He has also showed with Bristol Driving School and co-hosted an exhibition with George Atherton, Fast Food Faster Paintings which saw the rejuvenation of a derelict fish & chip shop and celebrated the aesthetic present in the fast food culture.

For ART FLEA Sam will be showing an array of ceramic treats, artist books, prints, oil-skin bags and paintings.
