25 August – 11 November 2018

The central impulse behind these works is the ecstatic, fresh feeling of being alive, through an exploration of painting inspired by natural forms. There is a sense by which art is dreaming while you’re awake, and the works are influenced by the perennial dream of the primordial state of wholeness of a paradisical garden of pure beauty. To the end of partaking in prominent Australian art prizes, Samuel Quinteros has also worked in portraiture, through which he seeks to produce a testimony of character with the compositional techniques he has learned.

Samuel Quinteros lives and works in Katoomba, NSW, and is represented by Galerie pompom, Sydney.
