Gregory Scott executes in painting\, photog raphy and film precise representations of what we perceive to be reality…un til the subject moves\, the frame zooms startlingly from the viewer\, and “ reality” as we understand it is exposed as a series of unfounded assumption s. “What if? is a good question\, I think\,” says Scott. “What if the room I’m in is an illusion but the picture hanging on the wall is real?” In the creation of such pieces as In the Next Room\, Scott concludes that "By placing a video into a photograph of a frame in a gallery setting\, I try to examine the conventions of art and its relevance and value in today’ s world."

Scott\, whose unique philosophical persona underp ins all of his work\, mines “What if?” for poetic revelation and humor in w orks that blend painting\, photography\, and video with a wily talent for c onceptual distortion. Attemptuous seems at first simply a classica l nude painting…until a modern-day suitor (played by Scott) ambles into the lush still-life chamber within the frame and attempts to woo its reclining subject. Within an enchanting six-minute loop\, the viewer/voyeur discover s the lengths this character will go to in order to provoke a reaction from his painted object of desire (who\, at some point\, responds with an unimp ressed wiggle of her toes). Similarly\, Scott’s charming and perplexing Thanks for the Scribbles involves a small child with a paintbrush and a series of surprised museum-goers in a chicken-and-egg pun about how pain tings are made\, framed\, observed\, and reconstructed in the strictly cons cribed art world. As viewers we soon find ourselves searching breathlessly for the “in\,” the hidden thread that Scott will pull to defray our origina l conception of his works\, and reframe the notion of what it means to enco unter a painting or photograph hanging on a gallery wall.
