Susan Still Scott

Earlier this year I made small paintings on panels for an exhibition I had at Kingston Gallery in Boston. Over the last ten years my work has become more and more sculptural although in my mind it is still painting; paint applied to an unconventional support whose final configuration I couldn’t predict. In painting there is always the question of pictorial space in relation to its ground. With this last show I wanted to re-iterate for myself what kind of two-dimensional imagery I was interested in. I began painting 9×12 inch panels that were going to stay 9×12 panels as if they were pictures. These remind me of necessity of fiction in art to transform literal form. There’s some cliché about good artists being good liars. It makes me want to do a lot more of these!  -Susan Still Scott 2012
