Jamie Scott’s exhibition ‘Fresh Start’ at the York College Gallery is inspired by everyday events whilst exploring the relationship between loss and new beginnings.
In recent years Scott’s work has continued to develop as a direct response to a number of different situations that impact on his everyday life. His practice attempts to connect to the freedom with which young children respond to ideas and the playful use of line, colour and shape. The combined use of considered and intuitive thinking is central to his recent work. Through the re-appropriation of discarded materials and a reflective process, his work has evolved into joyful Perspex installations.
Jamie Scott is a graduate of the Royal Academy Schools, London, and he is currently a full time lecturer on the MA and BA Fine Art degree courses at De Montfort University.
“This new exhibition, an abstract installation of colourful Perspex, fills the space with reflected light and becomes a mirror to everything else in the gallery. The bright geometric shapes will be very inspirational for those studying art and design and I hope all that see the show enjoy Scott’s use of bright, positive colour and shape”.
