Scott Anderson’s recent paintings contain undetermined creatures into a flattened three abstracted dimensional space. His process begins with a snippet of memory or a vestigial image lingering in his mind. He works intuitively to excavate something new and transformative from the memory. This process leads to paintings reminiscent both of Post-Modern Abstraction, Mexican Painting and American Regionalism.
Scott Anderson’s exhibitions have been reviewed last year in Artforum and The Los Angeles Times. His solo show with his work at Untiled Miami Beach last year has been selected in Whitehot magazine as one of the best shows in the fair.
William Bradley brings together the apparent spontaneity and energy connected with Abstract Expressionism and the precision in details and in composition which is quite the opposite. First you think of them as instant paintings and you surprise yourself by spending time on perfect details. You discover different juxtapositions of time condensed in these unexpected paintings. He deliberately destroys the usual preconceived connection between the visual language and the processes involved and re-infuses conceptual strategy to painting.
His work is included in the Susan and Michael Hort collection and the David Roberts collection.
