THE COLLECTION

Samuel Bassett was born in St Ives and he has recently returned, occupying a studio that has been passed down by family members & formerly occupied by Francis Bacon. 

Bassett’s work is autobiographical, cataloguing the day to day of his life with honesty, humour and pathos. Providing an insight in to his fast paced mind, the mixed media works display enormous energy and experiment. His paintings could be described as a ‘psychological cubism’, where the inner and the outer self reveal themselves and coalesce.

'The people in Samuel Bassett’s paintings are precise and delicate, etched with draughtsmanlike finesse. The forces that surround them are enormous, brutal, elemental. His characters are submerged in vast dark seas, battered by savage storms. He attacks the canvas with angry splashes of vivid colour. The fragile figures in his paintings often look a lot like him.' William Cook
