Biography

Bill Scott is known for his expressive paintings, reminiscent of quilts and patchwork, and his use of calligraphic lines and color blocking to create landscapes charged with emotion and movement. All of his marks, from looping lines and doodles to layered geometric shapes, undulate rhythmically, often blurring together to form a single, ambiguous color field. Translating inspiration from Henri Matisse and Fauvism into a more sublimated, abstract style, Scott’s work pursues exuberant beauty in an age more concerned with theoretical aims.
