On the Record with Scot Heywood
I am happy to share with you a new video featuring Scot Heywood and his show, Polarities, shot and produced by Ollie Bell. Scot met up with Ollie at the June 16th opening, where they decided to put something together to document the show. It was a pleasure to shoot here at the gallery, and an even greater pleasure to listen to Scot talk about his work.
In the video, you’ll hear from Scot about his roots in abstract expressionism, and how abstraction has always been central to his artistic practice. He also talks about his restrained aesthetic, and habit of investigating a single idea for several years before making a subtle but significant breakthrough.
This is the fourth video that Ollie has produced for us at the gallery, and it is as good as ever. His familiarity with the artists and their work always makes for a comfortable and fun atmosphere, and his work makes the art shine. I hope you’ll enjoy this video as much as I do, and don’t forget to stop by and see Scot’s work in person; his show Polarities runs until July 7th.
