Oil on 16 x 20 cradle board
One of Scott's former students, Pat Falco, and his friend Elliot Anderson have started a gallery in Boston. Their goal is to bring quality, new art in from young artists around the city into areas that might not normally see it. The resulting Lincoln Art Project Gallery has already hosted some unique shows including a showcase of concept artists from Harmonix and a Type show. When Scott and I heard about their plans to do an 'artist couples' show for Valentines day, we couldn't resist and thought it would be fun to create some portraits of each other for the show. I decided make Scott into a symbolist image about the relationship between artist and creative urge.
Scott did a fantastic portrait of me looking very confident with my painting attire and, best of all, surrounded by books. It's a stunning graphic piece and I love that he sees me this way:
You can read Scott's blog about the process here.
And some press about the show, in which we are interviewed with some of the other artists, in the Weekly Dig here.
