Prior Art Styles
After art classes in High School, Scot temporarily put fine art aside to focus on poetry and creative writing. Call it serendipity or destiny, Scot soon gravitated towards experimenting with art. Here we will look at prior art and show various art styles that lead Scot Aaron to poArt Expressionism. Early oil paintings lead to expressionistic, Zen like abstract expressionism, to the abstract "Left hand Rites."
At 20 Scot went to Colorado after independently backpacking Asia [basically Thailand and China] for 6 months. Here he visited Denver and two friends from High School. One thing leads to another and Scot finds himself attending college in Denver for a year. Eventually the three high school friends rented a basement where a prior artist left a few mostly used oil paints in floor of the closest. Inspired for the future, Scot collected up the tubes. One night he decided to apply the oils to a canvass board. Interestingly, he forget to buy paint brushes and used kitchen objects with his finders.
This initial foray into oil painting with Hubble Deep Field Lines is enough motivation for Scot to create more art. Months later [in 1985 at age 20], Scot transferred schools to Boulder Colorado and ended up spending part of his budget on oil paints, brushes and canvasses. He lived alone in a studio apartment. Although a full time student focusing on writing and poetry classes fashioning faces in Sword Games of Love transformed Scot's priorities.
Sword Games of Love shows a mysterious red knight extending a sword into a heart that drips tears from a concerned eye.
Scot finished more than 15 sizable oil paintings this semester. With the cost of paints, brushes and canvass, Scot stored belongings and actually spent his last month [including his finals week] living on the streets. Poems and journal detail fear, sleep deprivation and other hardships during this period.
What is anger definition really reflects and expresses anger from the history classes and current cold war politics that filled youth with the threat of annihilation through nuclear war. During this period Scot attends his Liberal Art class during the day and paints throughout the evening, night and morning .
Mothers Milk Film combines the original painting of interacting bodies, covered with more abstract filled in faces. During the following year [after taking a summer and semester off to explore India] Scot desired to paint and due to very tight budget constraints he opted to paint over parts a few prior canvasses. This painting shows the face of Scot's Mother as surrounding scenes unfold like a film images.
Abstract Dream Meanings can be interpreted like a dream. The more abstract faces painted over the originals completed during the prior year.
Platonic Solids liquids and gases gets into crystalline reflects of life and memories. This relates to the Plato Ideas realm in Scot's life.
Abstract list of emotions almost entirely paints over a previous Scot Aaron oil painting. Scot already owned oil paints and brushes. Unable to afford canvass he covered a prior art style to develop more abstract techniques.
