Bill Scott solo show features twenty five recent paintings
Scott’s new body of work is rooted in his classic vibrant palette, fluid brush strokes and masterful balance of abstraction.


NEW YORK, NY.- Painter Bill Scott, who is known for his intriguing ability to dance the line between abstraction and representational in his vividly colored canvases, has recently opened his seventh exhibition at Hollis Taggart Galleries, titled Bill Scott: Leaf and Line, which runs through April 28th, and is accompanied by an exhibition catalog. The gallery is located at 521 West 26th St. on the seventh floor.

Scott’s new body of work is rooted in his classic vibrant palette, fluid brush strokes and masterful balance of abstraction. Propelled by inspiration from nature, Scott continues his exploration of form and color in a fresh way. The show once again is a testament to Scott’s ability to create tension in the viewer’s mind that asks the question; do we know this scene that is depicted before us? It is through this tension and this line of questioning that the viewer’s curiosity is peaked.

Demonstrating the confidence and control of a seasoned painter, Scott’s most recent studio offering reveals a freer, more expansive pictorial space and use of white. The surfaces of the work are composed of layer after layer of paint, a skill he has been honing his entire career. Complex, but never muddy, the overlapping elements in the paintings appear both spontaneous and carefully arranged at the same time. Harmony is always achieved with the painter’s virtuoso talent and pure intuition to combine hues, structure and movement.

A native of Philadelphia, Scott formally began studying at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 1974, an institution at which he later served as a professor for many years. He continues to live and work in his home state, with work in the permanent collection of countless museums, private collections, and institutions throughout the world. Scott is a noted scholar on the work of the French Impressionist, Berthe Morisot.
