OCAD U alumnus exhibition

B Contemporary presents their first solo exhibition of recent paintings by Scott Sawtell. Each painting in the series “there is a light that goes out” shows a majestic animal in situ, with flowers blooming from them.

The paintings are purposefully uncanny. The animals might be sleeping or they might be waking. They might be alive or they might be dead. The flowers might be growth or funereal flowers placed upon them. The animals could be metaphors for people, or they might just be animals. Sawtell’s goal is for them to exist in no particular space which allows the viewer to place them wherever they imagine.

About the Artist:
Scott has an M.F.A from the University of Waterloo and is a graduate of OCAD University. As well as maintaining a vital artistic career showing work across Canada and the United States, Scott has previously curated exhibitions for The Town of Newmarket, the City of Kitchener and Oakville Galleries. He also organized and participated in 60 Painters; an ambitious exhibiton of contemporary Canadian painting which was held at Humber College in May of 2012.

Scott Sawtell is also an art instructor at Brock University in St. Catharines, as well as Georgian College in Barrie, Ontario. He previously taught at OCAD University in Toronto, Ontario.
