Sam Burford


224 Brushes - The Wizard of Oz - Before the colour starts, 2011 | Oil on Treated Perspex - 120x90cm

Sam Burford creates objects and films that explore the temporal and transformative nature of meaning and language. Burford's work is an investigation into how cinematic language affects the way we attribute meaning to what we experience through our prior experiences of cinema. By adapting populist media Burford seeks to alter the viewers engagement and perception of this material. See more;
