Week 4 – Artist Conversation – Scott Burn

IMG_4782

As I was walking through Scott Burn’s exhibit, I was mesmerized by his deformed sculptors. What was running through my head was, what made him create these insane sculptors. They made me feel a certain way, somewhat sad and terrified. His sculptors were dark, most of his sculptors were dark blue, mixed with red, and black. I asked him why he used dark colors for his pieces and he said, it represents a good friend of his that committed suicide a few years ago. I realize that most artist create their art work from their experiences they have been through, good and bad which inspires them to create the pieces that they want to show their audiences and hopefully, the audience can understand what the artist was trying to portray. Scott has been carving clay for four years and his inspirations mostly comes from his friends and from artists from the funk period.
