DESCRIPTION

Scott Wayne Indiana

 

The sun is moving

 

Scott's gestural, abstract paintings are an expression of re-examining, unlearning and shedding the programmatic aspects of formal training and development. His large canvases serve as a simple backdrop to the creative process itself; once painting begins, the confining ideal is largely left by the wayside in an effort to follow original artistic thought. In other words, anything is possible once brush meets surfac.

 A favorite in the Portland art scene, Scott's work has been featured in numerous publications, including The Los Angeles Times, The Oregonian , Portland Monthly, and an upcoming issue of Art in America . In a recent Art Ltd. magazine profile, Indiana's paintings are described as "deploying an intuitive sense of movement in invigorating compositions, his shellac drips and graphite scribbles reminiscent of Cy Twombly…Antoni Tàpies, Antonio Saura, and Manolo Millares."
