Press Release

Michael Scott
Black and White Line Paintings 1989 - 2011
January 12 - February 18, 2012

Opening reception: January 12, 6-8pm


“Over the last twenty five years my work has taken several forms of expression, from concentric circle or target paintings, to black and white line paintings, to photographs, to cartoon-inspired drawings, to paintings that can be described as psychedelic ‘candyland’ themed landscapes, to small thickly encaustic abstractions. However, over this period of time, the most pre-dominant works are the “highly optical” black and white line paintings done since 1989. These are probably the works for which I am best known.

In 1994 I stopped making abstract line paintings but I returned to this type of work in 2002 and 2003 and then most recently in 2010 and 2011. It is this grouping of highly optical black and white line paintings around which I have built this exhibition.

I do not intend for this exhibit to be a survey show or retrospective as it is does not attempt to explain my history as an artist. Rather it presents one type of painting that I have made and returned to making over a twenty five-year period - one that has taken different forms with each re-investigation.”
