Artist Sam Spenser is a very cool dude. Having studied film, Spenser's passion for mainstream film making waned and his desire to create sculptural fine art rose to the surface. 'Bloom' composed in 2007 became a much talked about sensation, the use of hundreds of egg yellow umbrella's scattered amongst the branches of a tree to create a petal like illusion shows the sense of humour and the attitude to nature and the man-made that Spenser takes.
Sam likes to keep a closed lid on his up coming projects but we just love his ethos of recycling and salvage, as he takes obsolete and forgotten objects and transforms them to create new sculptures. Spenser talks about his process romantically: "Reclaimed material has a history by definition – it’s a kind of soul or resonance that develops in the core of any used object." Past Present Future adore this young artist's approach to contemporary art as something which encompasses all things old with the new. The future is Sam Spenser.
