ARTIST'S BIOGRAPHY
Scott Harrington is a working contemporary abstract painter with a home studio and gallery in Middleton, Wisconsin.

His paintings are mostly watercolor/gouache, acrylic and oil pastel on a variety of surfaces including canvas, paper and wood panel. His signature work consists of abstract interpretations of nature using the entire spectrum of colors to produce paintings that are calming, inspiring and uplifting.

Scott was born in Madison, WI. He holds a Bachelors Degree in Biology, Masters Degree in Education and Advanced Certificates in Horticulture/Landscape Design. He currently owns/operates a Landscape Service also based in Lenox, MA.


ARTIST�S STATEMENT
The process of transforming paint and other materials into images continues to compel and challenge me. Over the years, that process has led me from ceramics, photography, drawing and painting, and most recently to pursue experimental processes on paper. Painting fills me with a sense of serenity and integrity, and has proven a most reliable vehicle for translating inner vision to outer reality.

My abstract paintings explore the wonders of nature and beauty in our world. Personal symbols that have emerged through this process include; the Turtle (wisdom/grace), the Dragonfly (metamorphosis/change) and the Tree (steadfastness/beauty).

I use a variety of different paints/media (oil pastel, ink, acrylic, latex, gouache, and wood) and yet I am always drawn back to water colors for their unpredictable nature and their transparency.

I paint from the inside out. Focusing on the sensation and context of my experience. I work deliberately, employing both traditional and innovative techniques, while letting the uncertain nature of painting free my hand. My paintings are finished when they are able to convey a moment or sensation, as well as what I am feeling.
