This particular piece has a meaning that I will not share but will say its somewhat of a funny story . It has something to do with a trip to Dallas, a train ride, a lark in the park and a well kept secret. Only A.M.L.S would know the whole back story but those records are sealed. I joke that this is my most “ half assed “ work to date. I know its...
This particular piece has a meaning that I will not share but will say its somewhat of a funny story . It has something to do with a trip to Dallas, a train ride, a lark in the park and a well kept secret. Only A.M.L.S would know the whole back story but those records are sealed. I joke that this is my most “ half assed “ work to date. I know its a little tongue in cheek but this writing is full of puns and hints but the real meaning behind it will stay buried in the depths of my thoughts as ass backwards as they may be. Don’t worry, your not the butt of the joke but someone is and if this description was any less cryptic I’m sure it would chap their ass.

SOLD.. this piece resides in Colorado

Scott was born in the early 70s on the east coast. Son to a chemical engineering professor and a school teacher. After bouncing around many states and even more cities Scott landed on his own in Austin Texas at the age of 17. He attended college by day and created leatherwork by night. The leatherwork lead to a show that was created basically by accident to feature his work in a fashion show. He then wrote, directed and performed in that show on on a weekly basis for 14 years. Then life changed dramatically due to a family tragedy and the show closed and Scott went to work as a roughneck welder for the next 10 years. While raising his daughter alone on a shoestring budget he began to sculpt with scrap steel from the shop to cope and keep busy.  He is self taught and  has been sculpting now for about 5 years and his primary subject is the female form. His goal is to take the chaos of a rigid medium thats cold, hard and sharp and pattern it in to soft flowing forms , smooth to the touch that convey warmth and emotion.
