Scott VanderVoort

Hometown: New York

Based in: New York & Asia

Scott VanderVoort is a New York-based artist whose work broadly explores themes of impermanence, beauty and the ambiguous divide between art and the mundane. VanderVoort works in both two and three dimensions, with paint, sculpture and installation, and through his art engages viewers in an often playful dialogue about the process by which objects, images and spaces acquire meaning. VanderVoort’s work often involves the process, in his words, of “activating space, place and objects to bring life to what has seemingly been overlooked or disregarded.”

A passionate teacher on art and design, VanderVoort has served for two decades as a professor in Pratt Institute’s Industrial Design department, where he has taught on color, form and space. His lectures on abstract form-making have taken him to Brazil, South Korea, China and Indonesia.

He values his role as an artist in creating projects and ideas that promote the importance of cultural preservation and protecting the art of making by the hands. His artworks balance and celebrate beauty, spirituality and community.

His current paintings promote an exploration in abstraction, modularity, and balance - searching for and to uncover a sweet spot in a compositional arrangement.
