About the artwork
British painter Sam Windett produces works that vary between dense still life compositions of everyday items to large-scale compositions suggestive of landscapes or city scenes. Motifs are often repeated across works, moving beyond formalist strategy to construct an almost hieroglyphic language. As in previous series, October is caught between abstraction and figuration, opacity and representation, assembling recognisable items in reduced form.
