Michael Scott’s landscape paintings reveal a kind of portraiture embedded in a dramatic depiction of the natural world. Conjuring meditations on the transformative power of nature, the paintings reverberate with psychological depths and mystical symbolism. Here you will find conversations on the four elements – air, earth, water, fire – originating in the remote wilderness areas of our national parks and illustrating Scott’s reverential belief in our connection to the wild. Scott’s work invites us to wonder at Nature’s mysteries and suggests we protect the divine in the everyday.
Like the 18th century artist Thomas Cole observed, a landscape is an ever-changing place both vulnerable and transient. Scott’s paintings echo this truth and remind us of the line between the physical and the divine.
