Artist’s work addresses the universal themes of fear, regret and longing. In his prints these feelings are made manifest with an intricate network of wiry, anatomical lines, delicate and twisted. He finds relief printing a way to depict both our inner turmoil and the outer physicality of the human form at once. Sometimes this might appear on the surface of the skin or take the shape of an organic growth or painfully permanent subtraction.
He is committed to creating an alternate world, in which he makes a statement about the nature of reality and about my own involvement with reality. To this end, he brings his creations to life using simple animation and in doing so, he pushes the viewer to acknowledge our shared unsettling emotions. He enjoys the juxtaposition of using a art making technique which hasn’t changed in 700 years with one that is barely 20 old.

Scott Minzy (USA)
Scott Minzy is a printmaker, lo-fi animator, and art educator who has a tendency to take himself far too seriously. He is (not so) affectionately known as the mean art teacher at Erskine Academy, mainly due to his overbearing personality and pompous behavior. When not teaching or in his studio, Mr. Misery likes to copy illustrations from old dictionaries, daydream about having super-powers and scour used bookstores feeding his unhealthy obsession with self-help books. He is currently at work making a series of lists, desperately trying to find a connection, any connection.
