SAM BLACKWOOD (b.1992) is an artist based in London, UK. Blackwood uses found material and imagery collected through personal experience and research as the starting point for his practice. Heavily influenced by happenings in his daily life and his time spent growing-up in Hartlepool in North East England, Sam’s practice explores the complexities of British identity and the class issues which exist in England through sculpture and photography which then are formed into installations. Recent exhibitions include: Hard Faced (2019), Enclave Project, London; Bound Book Fair (2019), Whitworth Gallery, Manchester; Paper Cuts, curated by Kristian Day (2018), Saatchi Gallery, London; Docile Bodies (2018), Vitrine, London and TURBO (solo) (2017), GOLDTAPPED, Newcastle.
