An introduction can be a wonderful thing. You can meet interesting people, and make new friends. You can be introduced to your new favorite foods, books, music, or artist.

I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite artists. Some of whom I’ve been familiar with for years, and others I’ve only recently been introduced to.

The person I’d like to introduce is the artist Susan Still Scott.

“Pictorial abstraction and objecthood wrestle in my paintings. As dual entities they have to compete and co-operate and ultimately reconcile before I consider what I have in front of me finished. Almost any object like a scrap of wood, a cardboard box or a wire frame can replace the ubiquitous rectangular plane, confound the very definition of it, and still be the foundation of a painting— like an umbilical to the wall. Each part is made with the idea of reconfiguring it as many times as it takes to progress. This process of restructuring abstract formal relationships can begin to suggest autobiographical content, but I never allow concrete references to take hold. Subjective readings are as integral to my work as the sensual encounter with color, image, surface and form. The physicality of a particular piece informs how I paint it, as the developing image changes how I see the form. I enjoy having the sense that something is happening, possibilities that I can’t completely know, while at the same time I’m sure of it’s visual and physical integrity.” – Susan Still Scott
