Sam Leitch

I have always been fascinated with what makes a piece of art. The connection between the viewer, the artist and the piece is a relationship which dominates my ever evolving art practice. I use colour and scale to illustrate what is topical in my own world.

I am interested in taking the viewer on a trip within the art. Bringing icons, ideas brought from everyday life onto the canvas then placing them within a surreal location underlies my work. From bottles of wine to bulldogs, birds and people, I try to explore the world with optimism raising unanswerable questions that keep the viewer both satisfied and interested.
