Adam Scott


Painter Adam Scott re-contextualizes the Middle American landscape by inserting surreal cartoon characters and distorted perspectives. The artist applies paint pigment in thick coats with vibrant artificial colors, which only further intensifies the imagery. Scott’s images are often derived from elements of cinema, old postcards and personal memories and experiences. By appropriating ideas and images from a collective American consciousness, Scott is able to offer a humorous yet unsettling portrayal of contemporary American culture. Scott holds degrees in fine art from California State University at Long Beach and The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The artist is currently represented by Kavi Gupta Gallery in Chicago and has exhibited with Galerie Schuster and Scheuermann in Berlin, Germany. In 2002, Scott completed a 12 x 12 with the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) in Chicago.
