Scott Scarboro

I enjoyed our visit from the artist Scott Scarboro.  I took a particular interest in what Scott said about using what you have and I like his fearless approach.  He likes to tinker with things and learn how to work out problems as he goes.  Scott's projects with children's toys are cute in a dysfunctional way, or as he says they are "homely".  The incorporation of materials of personal importance is a subtle way to give art layered meaning.  Scott's decision to use materials already in his posession a practical choice that teaches us that you shouldn't have to go to the store to get art supplies.  He is an inspiring artist for his relaxed attitude and ability to have fun with his projects.
