New Work by Scott Nelson
It’s a photographers’ job to capture a moment, but how exactly does one “capture” a moment? The act of plucking emotion from within the context of reality and distilling it into an artifact seems an impossible task, yet Scott accomplishes this and more in his new body of work titled “Here Now Forever”. These artworks are trophies distilled from explorations outside of the bonds of time. Some stretched like exotic animal skins; others composed to form their own visual language. Scott’s pieces offer us an omniscient view of existence, unfettered by the limiting perceptions of our physical being.
“I’m fascinated by time and humankind’s relative understanding of it. As an artist I like to step out of that seemingly one-way stream and to explore my own relationship with things considered temporary and permanent.” –Scott Nelson
Studio Tour Hands-on activity:
During open studios, Scott will demonstrate the process of transferring photo images to glass and other media. Anyone who stops by will be able to take part in the process, and will get to take home a small photo keepsake that they have helped to make.
