April 2 – May 14, 2005
Mark Moore Gallery is pleased to announce the first solo West Coast exhibition of the work of Scott Anderson.
Anderson, a young painter from Chicago, makes oil on canvas works in which a multitude of perspectives, objects and vignettes are conjoined in what the artist describes as “different possibilities of space–existing simultaneously.”
Anderson’s canvases pull from real-life experiences and fantasy, a mishmash of TV and movie viewing, architecture and design, comic books and art history.
Scott Anderson, Katedro. 2005, oil on canvas over panel, 60 x 48 inches
Neither utopic nor dystopic, Anderson’s work plays on the disjunctive nature of modern life, tempting viewers to join him a subtle enjoyment of its many complexities.
Scott Anderson was recently selected for 12 x 12: New Artists/New Work, the prestigious ongoing exhibition of young Chicago artists, organized by MCA Chicago. His work has recently appeared in solo exhibitions at the Chicago Cultural Center, Chicago, IL; Miami University of Ohio, Oxford, OH; and Galerie Jean-Luc and Takako Richard in Paris, France. His work was also featured in Painting and Illustration, curated by Adam Ross, at the Luckmann Art Gallery of California State University, Los Angeles.
