Sam Doctor was born in Sydney in 1977, he lives and works in Sydney. Doctor graduated from Sydney University, Sydney College of the Arts with Bachelor of Visual Arts (Honors) in 2006, and is currently studying A Masters of Research in Visual Arts. Doctor has exhibited extensively in both Sydney and Melbourne, in galleries including Chalk Horse and Sherman Galleries. His work has also been screened at Federation Square in Melbourne. More recently, Doctor has shown at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Art and at the project space at CACSA in Adelaide.
Doctor's art practice can be seen as an ongoing confrontation between humankind and the environment, highlighting the fragility of mankind in the face of natural forces, exposing the Faustian side of human nature and our will to contain what cannot be contained. His practice incorporates a range of artistic strategies: video, sculpture, photography and performance. Doctor also regularly collaborates with musical composers to construct soundscapes that either complement or feature as integral parts of his work.
