About the Artist

Scott Hutchison

Projects: My paintings and drawings are conceived by combining the use of photography, animation techniques, projections, and digital manipulation to create multifaceted figures that appear to move and animate. One painting may consist of four or five different time frames. Overlapping echoes, a figure may merge into another or become a haunting monstrous abstraction. My compositions are piece together digitally influenced heavily by my experience creating oil painted animations. In animation, the viewer sees a moving image created by separate time frames shown in quick succession. However, in this body of work the viewer is presented with multiple time frames at once. The result is a body of work that embraces realism, surrealism and abstraction. Each piece is intentionally shrouded in mystery, letting the viewer interpret its various meanings. However, I am fascinated by time, the idea of self, and the way in which I can evoke an urgency of being freed from the confines of self. Life is a series of ever changing events and time in its infinite step changes us. In an age of selfies, one portrait, or one moment in time does not capture the essence of who we are. We are many things.

This piece contains multiple poses of different figures. I am exploring new ways to abstract and complicate the figure. The overall effect of using different individuals as the subject allows me the freedom to experiment with the compositional structure and play with the space. It also adds a new layer to its meaning. By merging different moments and figures together I am presenting the thought that we (all things) are made from our time, memory and our experiences. Time is also not linear, but layered and complicated. It complicates us.
