Label Text:Known for his abstract landscape paintings, Sam Scott bridges the presentational and
abstract in his work. In Untitled, he fuses opaque and translucent areas of color with loose, overlapping lines to create an expressive abstract work with some hints of figural forms. Scott’s work is concerned with the physical and metaphysical world and he feels part of his mission as an artist is to accentuate and share the beauty and goodness of the world while acknowledging the suffering present. Scott grew up in Chicago and began attending the Chicago Art Institute at the age of ten and received his BFA from the University of Michigan and MFA from Maryland Institute College of Art.
