John Scott’s works usually unfold in series. Themes vary, incorporating multiple disciplines. He likes to incorporate modern quantum theory within a whole mélange of seemingly incongruent ideas, landscape, history, archetypes, mythology and current sociological events.
Scott tries to push the visual moiré of these ideas to where he feels he has touched a kind of holographic representation of what reality maybe, a multi verse with many ideas interwoven within the same space-time continuum.
Scott often uses Allegory to convey his subjective interpretation through perceived phenomena e.g. using a Banksias need for fire to rebirth itself into new growth.
Scott tries to see the causal tension underpinning each subject approached and no single answer seems to come forward in this search. He is tending to move toward new symbolism as a narrative beyond the normal façade of what we term reality.
