About Sam Blight

Sam Blight (63) was born and still resides in Western Australia, currently making a home with his wife Mary and several cats in the hills suburb of Boya, to the east of Perth.

He has traveled widely, including a stint during the late seventies doing voluntary work in an Indian Ashram as well as many business trips all over the world during the entrepreneurial phase of his life, all of which has helped him value the unique (if somewhat isolated) charms of his home town.

Sam has been "drawing stuff" for as long as he can remember. The digital art on this site has emerged from his recreational engagement with Photoshop, powerful imaging software that he uses every day in his capacity as a graphic designer. The approach is playful and non-serious. The results are often as much of a surprise to Sam as to anyone else, constituting an absorbing exercise in pure creativity and a fascinating exploration of abstract form and colour. Sam's interests in quantum physics, chaos theory and emergent phenomena are all reflected in the layered richness of the pieces which, like fractals, exhibit a degree of self-resemblance across scale and suggest an elusive unbroken wholeness and a spacious vastness which may resonate with the receptive viewer.

More recently Sam has been exploring representative work in the form of digital watercolours, using virtual brushes, paper and paint via Photoshop, some other specialised apps and a drawing palette.

Photography is another passion Sam has enjoyed since first using his mum's Kodak Brownie as a child. He uses a  Nikon P600 bridge camera , a Nikon D5000 DSLR and his Samsung Android phone.

Sam's other interests include music (he is a gifted guitarist with several acclaimed recordings to his name), cinema, non-dual philosophy (headlessness), applied ontology, epistempology, science, art and the literature, gardening and sitting very still, doing nothing.
