After an amazing trip to Europe, Scotty came home with a weight on his shoulders. A series he HAD to begin. It’s time to pay homage to the Old Masters; a nod of respect to the talented men who paved the way for all that came after them. Reverence, the first piece of Scotty’s new series entitled “Respect” is for doing just that. You can’t possibly know where you’re going if you don’t know where you came from.
Artists have been creating works on plaster since ancient Egypt. Most notable would be the frescos / fresco seccos created during the Renaissance by Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo, with the infamous Last Supper and the Sistine Chapel as two premier examples of frescos created by these artists and admired for centuries.
Etching, made most famous by Rembrandt, used rudimentary tools to engrave an image into copper plates. These plates were then used to transfer the image onto paper with different mediums. Rembrandt’s copper plates are found in museums and a few are in private collections.
Scotty, wanting to create something unique and wanting to reflect the works of the Old Masters, developed a concept that incorporated these techniques with a modern twist. Over a year was spent experimenting with different mediums and executions to make a truly uncommon form of artwork.
Utilizing Venetian plaster applied to a specialized art board, Scotty built up layers of materials giving the sub straight that old European feel. From that, he created a never seen before style that incorporates etching into the plaster with a colorization process that the Old Masters could not achieve in their works.
Where Scotty goes with this remains to be seen. However, if his history is an indicator of what is to come, we are no doubt about to see the emergence of some of the most amazing artwork that has ever been created in our lifetime.
What are Studio Editions?
Studio Editions are ultra-exclusive editions from Scotty that are often limited to less than 12. They bring his premier creativity to media such as wood, leather, metals and Venetian plaster that will take you Beyond the Canvas. They showcase Scotty's decades of experience in materials and manufacturing as his artistry delivers stunning creations that are the epitome of #SexyCool.
The beauty is Scotty gets to expand his capabilities by applying new techniques to the fine art world like they never have before.
How does pricing work for Studio Editions?
They will be limited; the price increases as they disappear; and once they are gone, there will be no more. It is not high pressure sales. It is simply an opportunity for Scotty to never stop growing as an artist and for our tight collector family to always have something new and special for their home.
