Scott King is showing at Opus, now through the end of April.
Scott King is a local artist and musician based out of Beverly, MA. His roots in painting focus on abstract expressionism and automatic writing. Recently, however, he has been inspired by street art techniques that incorporate stencils and spray paint. Abandoning canvas and working strictly on wood, along with combining these two different styles of art, have led to an interesting exploration of subdued color and texture. The palm sander has become as important as the paint brush in his latest series. Working layer upon layer while removing and adding simultaneously the artist is creating a new interpretation of the ‘push and pull’ method.
A little fun fact: Scott is not only an artist on "paper," but also on the plate. When he's not in the studio, you can find Scott in the kitchen of our sister restaurant Alchemy in Gloucester!
