Introducing: Sam De Freitas was Sam's first solo exhibit at the 20-21 Visual Arts Centre, Scunthorpe - UK. The show featured a body of work completed by De Freitas between 2016 and 2019. This body of large-scale gestural painting was the result of Sam destroying and re-working all of his efforts from his university degree show. "I was so lost and frustrated. I was forever creating work for a degree show that no longer existed. My mistake was waiting 3 years to destroy these trapped efforts. For about 2 months my studio was colourless and it was the most liberating feeling. It allowed me to re-learn the true values of painting, mess and instant gratification... even if it's wrong. I love mistakes, i'm always fucking up".
