Sam Clague

Sam’s primary medium is oil painting and mostly, he paints figurative subject matter, which in recent years has moved from discrete scenes towards a more highly saturated, collage approach.

His subject matter is broad and variable, though perhaps best described as treating the permafrost of digital mediation that rests heavy upon all realms of western experience and interaction.

Often drawn towards the subject of desire and sexuality, he attempts to render the specters of a long since unhinged and abstracted sexuality that weave silently through an altogether hyper-real psychological environment.
