My paintings attempt to visualize and represent an aura of human virtue and spirituality that can be universally recognized. I also deal with the notion of the ethereal in the context of emotional states. Sincere timeless conditions is what I am interested to bring into being.
"Nejati] is an artist who confesses to the canvas. His body of work is the purest and most direct translation of his artistic practice; his very soul is burning bright in these works. Abstraction allows that. At the same time, these paintings are more complete than they may appear at first glance. They generate a quality of surrounding light, in addition to the quality and sensitivity of the brushstrokes, light and value, and atmosphere and all the other elements which can only be expressed by painting. Sam confesses to the canvas, expresses his innermost emotions, his work is suggestive of greater than physical reality." --Robert Hughes (2010)
