About Scott Woodward Meyers


IconInspires

What inspires you?

I view my minimal painting and abstract photography as a continuing collection of transformative moments, revealing something seemingly ordinary in a new way, like visual haiku.


IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

The body of my work revolves around relationships between contrasts, apparent opposites and dualites. I am fascinated by natural and man-made processes, changing landscapes, urban environments and cultural diversity. Interdisciplinary exchange, questioning the status quo and envisioning where we are going are central to my understanding of artistic expression. Works often do not convey a single holistic sense immediately, but allow contemplation and the opportunity to see more deeply as an alternative.
