Lettres peintes sur plexi - Huile sur toile signée SAM ( 90x45cm). This work from "Sam" was made under pressure. Painting was definitely not California for him and many of his generation. Picasso Pablo was occupying the whole media space. Sam finally decided to leave for a while and reached the Marquesas to visit the grave of Gauguin Paul. Once there, he heard the voice of GP whispering "I trust you, you will be more famous than both Kloons Jeff and PP; be patient......." . Back home, he found new inspiration and worked his own way. Believe it or not, it was in the sixties...........and he stands here today to fulfil his mission !
