Bill Scott, Coastline, 2011
This is my favorite painting from a show of a lot of fabulous painting. Through October 8th, Bill has a solo show of about 20 paintings at Hollis Taggart in NY. I keep going back to the show's catalog to look at the work but also to read a line in the foreword that just explains exactly what I love about his work and what I want out of mine, "...imbuing each canvas with echoes of remembered experiences, moments and ruminations. Into each he weaves threads of color, compositions and subject matter chosen from his rich repository of artistic inspiration, experiences culled from the earliest moments when art 'found' him and he 'found' art." They're like poems made of paint.
