Adam Francis Scot's paintings, films, drawings, and collage work are characterized by a layering of invented and found images. Scott's works slip among the cracks of abstraction, landscape, and portraiture. Scott's paintings, drawings, films, and collage's power comes from their capacity to be all of these at a given moment, but none of them simultaneously. He explores how materials behave together and influence each other to create a form of visual and material harmonics that inform his creative processes.
