Michael SCOTT
(b. 1958, American)
Michael Scott works on large enamel-on-aluminum paintings whose lines initially created visual effects such as moiré patterns and the illusion of multiple plains with a hypnotic and peaceful quality. Like On Kawara, Scott sees his work as performative, calling it a “meditative practice or performance” with a “very optical end result.” Working with tape and paint, Scott marks off sections of canvas before coating it with paint—effectively highlighting positive and negative space. The meaning of his work is as much generated by absence and pause as it is by a positive presence of form.

New York-based artist Michael Scott was born in Paoli, Pennsylvania in 1958. He received his BA from Hamilton College in Clinton, NY. He studied at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine and then received his MFA from Hunter College in New York City.
