The Wishing Well

I’m calling this one done. Finding the point of completion is always satisfying on a painting. This one is going to hang in my house for some time while I move on to the next stack of books to paint.

This painting is available as a 12 x 12 inch print. See it in my print shop here.

Everything Old – My Vintage


Everything Old – the shop where a great deal of my subjects come from – came by my studio for a chat about my work. They’ve always been really amazing supporters and take a keen interest in what I do. I have often talked to them about my paintings so it was nice to be able to sit down and talk to them.

Tick-Tock: Time in Contemporary Art

Check out my painting in the slick catalogue for the exhibition Tick-Tock: Time in Contemporary Art at the Lehman College Art Gallery. The exhibition ran from February 2 – May 5, 2018.

My painting, Three, was included in the exhibition with numerous other works of depicting the concept of time.

“Stott created this quietly beautiful still life of three alarm clocks, all pointing to three o’clock, using a restrained palette of silver, taupe, and aqua that is subtly complimentary, like musical variations on a single theme. The artist revels in the visual satisfaction derived from the delineating variations in groups of similar objects. Here, the shapes of the bells, font of the numbering, and the style of the hands all lead the eye through and around the painting, encouraging the viewer to contemplate the similarities and find the differences in a kind of visual game.”

Talking & Listening

If you have time, please read this article about my work from Wall Street International Magazine. You’ll find a very good summation of the intentions of my paintings.

Red Rotary Telephone / 22 x 28 / oil on canvas

These two paintings are part of my current exhibition in Los Angeles at the George Billis Gallery.

They are used as representations for communication – a theme I have focused on for several years. Talking and listening; the literal functions of these as objects. Admired also for their iconic designs and vibrant color.
