Solo Show at Backrock Center for Arts

July 9 - August 1
"In sequence: paintings, drawings and animations by scott hutchison"

Shifting images of blinking eyes, moving lips and changing expressions flash across video screens as digital animations are displayed alongside sequential oil paintings and graphite drawings depicting the figure in motion. In his solo exhibition, Scott Hutchison
combines traditional painting and drawing techniques with digital technology to create animated portraits, displayed on small LCD panels, exploring identity and introspection in layered compositions of realistically rendered but separate moments in time.

The Call for Entry - Finding Gallery Shows.

This page is a list of websites that may help visual artists find calls for shows around the country. The purpose of this list is not to be all inclusive and list every local art center and gallery out there. Instead I envision this page as a list to help me* as well as an artist interested in gaining National and International exposure through a broader list of Call for Entry Sites, Slide Registries, Galleries, Museums, Universities and Art Centers.  There are a number of FREE call for entry lists out there.

Birds - Graphite Pencil Triptych

A combination of thoughts and images showing my journey forward on the triptych called "Birds"  This image illustrates what the final piece will look like when I am finished. It is a digital collage put together with about 10 layers of images and 4 photos in photoshop.  It is my sketch and helps guide me compositionally.

Fragmented - Digital Animation

I have restarted a piece I began working on in 2011. It is called Fragmented. This is my first piece that is completely painted digitally. I am using a technique called Rotoscoping . http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rotoscoping This project contains 827 stills and each painting takes about an hour to complete. Only 827 hours? Insane! But I have an insane sleep schedule sooo… Anyways, I think it could be a killer project and have quite an impact when it’s finished.

Flowers & Landscape in Graphite

My process of creating is not bound by any one subject or approach. It is an honest connection within myself, the world around us and the medium I have chosen. I particularly enjoy the linear and figurative elements of foliage. Branches and pedals twist on themselves and reach through the composition.

What to do when your art fails.*

 I have spent 20+ hours on a piece of art that frankly, needs to burn. What happened? This drawing is not in anyway what I intended it to be. It fails in so many ways. One: It is drawn sloppily. Two: It is Tacky. Three: It has a labored, overworked feel when you see it upon close inspection. Four: It poses to be more than it is, trying too hard to fit in.

Triptych - Figure Drawings

Though they are unfinished I thought I would post this triptych to document my progress.  My studio space is small and therefore they were composed and drawn separately. It is important that each image carries its own weight and works by itself, however these photos help me study their appearance as a group.

Community Canvas - Public Art Project at The Art League

The Art League asked me to come up with an interactive public art project to help commemorate their 60th Anniversary. It was a puzzle mural that anyone could take part in. In January 2014 anyone could walk into the gallery and work on a supplied puzzle piece and add it to the wall. These are photos of the piece being created. You can see there are drawings, paintings, sculptures, photographs, etc. I have been told that the Community Cnvas will be reassembled later this year in a new location.
