Tim Scott:The Sixties –
When Colour was Sculpture

January 30 – April 11, 2010

The Everson presents the monumental steel sculptures of British artist Tim Scott along with recent ceramic sculptures from his House of Clay series. The large-scale sculptures made of painted steel and acrylic sheeting were created in the late 1960s, a time when painters and sculptors alike celebrated color as form and subject.  While studying to be an architect at the Architectural Association in London (1954-59), Scott was also enrolled in classes at the St. Martin’s School of Art, where he worked with the well-known sculptor Anthony Caro.  He was also exposed to the work of David Smith and other prominent sculptors of the time whose creative processes involved construction and assemblage rather than traditional methods such as modeling or molding.

Scott, along with Philip King, William Tucker and Isaac Witkin, became identified with a group of emerging sculptors in Britain known as the “New Generation.”

Scott, who had the advantage of an architectural training, transformed new materials such as painted steel, plastic and fiberglass into large-scale constructions that seemed to float with weightlessness.  Carefully coordinated color schemes were selected for the plastic sheets which were then placed at varying angles that harmonized perfectly with the negative space around them.  For example, in the Bird in Arras series, thin planes of brilliantly colored acrylic supported by a framework of steel tubing balance effortlessly like a bird preparing for flight as referenced by the title.  Bird in Arras VII which spans more than 8 feet tall and 10 feet wide stands on but four points of the orange and yellow sheets allowing the work to evolve and change with every vantage point.

Because of their dramatic scale, which requires large spaces to be viewed properly, these works have not been exhibited in decades. The Everson’s I.M. Pei galleries provide a stunning space to view Scott’s sculptures in-the-round, an experience that cannot be duplicated.
