Description

Jeffery Scott (a.k.a. 1019) creates photographic images that stretch boundaries and redefine standards. His photographs are powerful juxtapositions of light and darkness. in the first twenty years his artistic life revolved around painting, sculpting, and production design for music videos, television commercials and motion pictures. Then, in an effort to produce a more exacting science behind his artistic vision, photography became the chosen medium for expression without compromises. It wasn't until November, 2002 that Jeffery Scott made the switch from sculpting and painting to photography full time. His first series explores this change and illustrates his transformation into a more complete art. In December of 2003, Jeffery Scott began developing his second series. His photographs became for him what his paintings always wanted to be. The ideas were more complex than before. The photographs represent an average minimum of fifty hours of meticulous work. All elements within the piece represent dozens of images combined and layered to construct the over-all whole, creating complex environments, settings and landscapes. The photos can be looked at as layers upon layers of information communicating, to the viewer, a series of in-depth philosophies, concepts and stories. Thought provoking titles also aid in this communication, drawing the viewer even deeper into the artists emotive, and contemplative realms.
