SCOTT ANDRÉ CAMPBELL
PAINTING + MIXED MEDIA
I see linear structure in the visual world. Volumes and spaces are defined by lines and edges. Everything has geometry. Abstraction is my order in an otherwise chaotic environment. In my memory, structures I’ve seen blend together over time and specific shapes stand out. My artmaking process mirrors that experience. Work evolves slowly and additively. As each mark or layer is introduced it guides me to understand its relationship with the previous one to discover new shapes, spaces and harmonies. My work serves to convey the order and joy derived from many visual systems existing together. Working non-figuratively, I’m more centered on relaying a sense of a visually unified whole than the individual parts of it.
