‘Gary Scott’s sculptures range from figuration to abstraction, referencing and evoking nature and the body in challenging ways. His works attempt to embody the process of making with dynamic, roughly hewn surfaces that imply the forms are vying for life or attempting to dissolve themselves. Simultaneously witty, sexy, playful and macabre, Scott’s sculptures reach, wilt, twist and tear themselves into being. References from science, literature, music and art history are embraced, channelled and wilfully distorted to create works that reflect desire, conflict and our ability to connect with the world’.
Scott works between his studio in Englefield Green, Surrey and Cornwall. His work has been widely exhibited including at ING Discerning Eye, the Cork Street Open, KPMG’s Canary Wharf headquarters and at Waterperry House, Oxford. Gary has undertaken a number of commissions including the memorial sculpture ‘Free Spirit’ now situated in the heart of St Ives in Cornwall and publically visible. His work is held in collections as far afield as New York, Dubai and Melbourne.
I have a deep-rooted interest in Psychology (from my first degree) and seek to express my emotional world and to probe what it is to be human – often working intuitively and engaging with the unconscious in order to access the deeper recesses of my mind. I am currently undertaking an MA in Art & Science at Central Saint Martins in London (2016/18).
