Stanley Scott’s formative years were spent in a Houston carpenter’s shop. There he gained respect for the creative process and working with his hands. Printmaking and drawing satisfy his craving for tactile connection and allow him to work through ideas naturally.
Stan strives to connect with something universal in his work; drawing on concepts and imagery that people can, on a fundamental level, relate to and understand. His drawings revolve around a larger theme, relating to human struggle and tension within ourselves and our environments. The concept of tension explored in these works brings out the viewer’s own history with struggle, tension and balance. The size of these drawings reflects the human scale, and allows for gestures and mark making, that both feel and look natural.
