"Sam is an Australian born graphic artist, designer currently based in NYC. Informed by the notion of altered states of consciousness,
Sam’s work is an exercise in contradictions of order and incomprehension; Collage elements, oil-like pastel distortions,
optical illusions and esoteric iconography contrast with a balanced composition. In combination with an evident interest in ancient civilizations
and sacred geometry (a discipline that popularizes proof of cosmic significance, divine design intervention and above all, order)
the resultant body of work is as close to a disorientation of the senses as design can achieve – and that is just how he likes it."
