- Artist Biography
Sam Chivers’ graphic artworks plunge the viewer into an alternative universe, referring to the pseudo realistic world of vintage computer games to create images that dismiss the realms of reality, yet still retain a comforting familiarity. Strands of narrative are suggested but overall scenes are often open ended and ambiguous, inviting the viewer in to speculate and lose themselves in each composition.
Chivers lives in Brighton and loves nature, wandering about the South Downs whenever possible. As such his work often depicts themes of science fiction, cosmical and the fantastical, alongside an innate love of landscape.
- Artwork Analysis
I like Baboons, especially these ones with their multicolouRed snouts. So I canonised one. There’s something a bit monolithic about about the shapes behind him, though as someone pointed out they also look a bit like penguins too so I guess that lessens the 2001 Space Odyssey reference somewhat. I was listening to a lot of minimalist phase Brian Eno when I made this, and I think the moonlit infinity pool may reflect that.
