Interview With Wimbledon Fine Art Owner: Sam Lock Exhibition

Interview With Wimbledon Fine Art Owner: Sam Lock Exhibition

Posted by Lady Wimbledon | 29 June 2017 | Arts & Culture

Wimbledon Fine Art is a 28-year-old gallery located in beautiful Wimbledon Village. With the sunshine spreading inside the gallery through the large windows, we enjoy the tranquil atmosphere calming piano music playing in the background.

The paintings display a gentle mix of colours, which give the feeling of calm, relaxation and elegance. Andrew Stoppani, the friendly owner of the gallery, used to work in a bank and later on found his passion for art.

The painter, Sam Lock born in the year of 1973 in London, has worked for 15 years in education before becoming the professional painter. Sam and Andrew held his first exhibition in London two years ago, which went really well. Last month Wimbledon Fine Art held an exhibition to honour the artist.

What kind of paintings were in this exhibition?

The paintings shown in the exhibition were abstract paintings. The paintings are whatever you see in them – you can imagine the sea or the sky. They come from Sam Lock’s heart, which shows depth, colours and movements – which all have an impact on the viewer.

In your opinion, how do these paintings make you feel?

People have different understandings of the paintings that evoke a range of emotions. Personally speaking, these paintings make me feel very calm.

Where would you hang these paintings?

Every painting has a place. I encourage people to take the paintings home and see what effect it has on their surroundings.
