Gordon Scott


The abstract work of Gordon Scott is a modern day trompe l’oeil. With a method that utilizes acrylic painted on the back of a glass canvas, this unusual aesthetic is the product of many years of artistic investigation. Arrived at through experimentation with a range of mediums, such as watercolor, ink, charcoal and photography, his method produces vivid color that expresses a contemporary and visually pleasing object of abstraction. Attempting to capture the magical color configurations of the Caribbean Sea and its stunning coral reefs, the peeling paint of dilapidated buildings dried from the sun, his working method is a reversal of the traditional method of painting.
