Adam Scott Statement

My recent paintings are visual distillations of observed geologic phenomena that occurs in the high elevations of the Mojave Desert in Joshua Tree California.  I couple those distillations with my interest in the utopic and dystopic aspects of science fiction to create paintings that re-imagine the western landscape circa 2017.  Was the painting made by a human hand or extruded from the earths’ mineral crust by something altogether non-human.

I’m interested in making paintings that speak a sculptural language within a compressed two-dimensional abstracted pictorial space, in other words, I see my work as micro-sculpture that hinge on the brink of the pictorial. 

I’ve always been fascinated by the visual and physical weight of paint as a substance, yet also by paint’s ability to transcend its physical boundaries and become a shunt that communicates directly with the viewer.  For me, painting has always been about a comingling of the concrete and the fictive, in other words, there must always be a tension between the “thingness” object hanging on the wall and what is being “pictured” on the surface of that object.

Curatorial Experience:

Co-owner and director of Deluxe Projects.

 

Duties include: installation, gallery space maintenance, web based and hard-copy show announcements / graphic design, public relations, organizing opening night activities, fund-raising, and curatorial studio visits. Deluxe Projects was a curatorial collective consisting of Danielle Gustafson-Sundell, Andy Moore, and Carrie Gundersdorf, and Adam Scott. Starting in May of 2000 and ending in 2006, Deluxe Projects curated 11 solo projects in a variety of media and forms. From 2000-2004 Deluxe Projects was located in the 500 W. Cermak building. Eight of the eleven shows took place in our gallery space. Three of the projects were located in the various incarnations of the “Stray Show”. Two of those projects took the form of posters and underground “zines”. Our Next project will be the publishing of Andy Moore’s 700 page graphic novel.
