Artist’s Statement – Emerging Figure Series
When I was starting out as a painter I was obsessed with the work of Goya and Rembrandt. In my earlier career, inspired by these masters, I would always focus on the figure before tending to the background, if doing so at all. But in my recent work I have chosen to flip this whole process on its head. I wanted to move away from what felt like the predictability of my process. My passion for the abstract has grown and become the starting point.
My goal is for the two, the abstract and the figure, to sit comfortably together, each part of the other.
Emerging Figure Four by Scott Tetlow
Scott Tetlow was born in Rochdale, England in 1969. During his late teens, whilst roadying for punk bands, he would spend his free time sketching punks and designing album covers. It was this body of work that earned him a place at the University of Cheltenham, where he gained his fine art degree.
Scott went on to become an art teacher, although he continued to paint and exhibit his own work. Today his work is highly sought after and we are delighted to include several of his oil paintings and his ink drawings in the gallery.
