5 Artists on our Radar
B. 1973, Urbana, Illinois. Lives and works in La Cienaga, New Mexico.
Scott Anderson’s new “Biotech” paintings were due to be featured in a solo show at New York’s Denny Dimin Gallery opening on May 8th. And with their explosive shocks of color, dreamlike imagery, and references to technology, memory, and artmaking, the works would have likely made a splash. While the COVID-19 crisis has delayed the physical show, collectors can still discover the new series on Artsy, where the abstract-meets-figurative works have struck a major chord with our audience. When our Curatorial team selected a work from “Biotech” to be included in Artsy’s Art Keeps Going campaign earlier this month, it quickly became the campaign’s most inquired-on artwork.
Though Anderson’s paintings may appear spontaneous in their emotive intensity, the artist creates each work after an original drawing and utilizes his deep mastery of technique and composition, honed through his decade-long career as a fine arts educator.
