Sam Winston creates sculpture, drawings, and books that question our understanding of words both as carriers of messages and as information itself. His work combines playful and meticulous assimilation of contemporary information – statistics, data, computer programming – with canonical works such as Shakespeare and the dictionary. He is interested in childhood and story-telling and draws us into the underlying subtexts that often exist beneath what might initially appear as ‘pure’ texts. His work draws upon many approaches and forms, often applying meticulous layers of found text which are reordered through indexical categories. Through drawing, cutting, folding, and typography, complex ideas emerge in new work that seems clear, logical, and completely necessary amidst the saturation of financial and media text that is around us and often impossible to process.
