John Scott Paintings at Soho Galleries and Chifley Foyers
My works usually unfold in series. Themes vary, incorporating multiple disciplines. I like to incorporate modern quantum theory within a whole
mélange of seemingly incongruent ideas, landscape, history, archetypes, mythology and current sociological events.
I try to push the visual moiré of these ideas to where I feel I've touched a kind of holographic representation of what reality maybe, a multi verse with many ideas interwoven within the same space-time continuum.
I often use Allegory to convey my subjective interpretation through perceived phenomena e.g. using a Banksias need for fire to rebirth itself into new growth.
The element of fire also needed to transmute or alchemise different states of consciousness to other, perhaps more refined, platforms of understanding.
try to see the causal tension underpinning each subject approached and no single answer seems to come forward in this search. I’m tending to move toward new symbolism as a narrative beyondthe normal façade of what we term“ reality”.
