Description

Samara Scott's work is inspired by everyday urban life, the languages ​​of the post-media era and its chaotic frenzy. Make-up with bright colors, silicone, felt, toothpaste, toilet paper are melted by the artist in delicate and bizarre combinations. Scraps of disposable consumer society products, images torn from magazines or stolen from youtube, become in the hands of the artist tools to re-propose, parodying them, the strategies of the consumer goods and entertainment industry. In a world devastated by hyperrealism, Scott tries to awaken the senses, showing the increasingly ambiguous boundary between the physicality of a real object and its vitality on the screen. Aquarelle Gastebuch I (2014) is a large sheet of glass. The surface is covered with a fluid and delicate pattern of colored elements. The rhythm of the melodic and sensual composition evokes the harmonies of Kandisky, to whom the title of the work explicitly refers, inspired by a painting he made in 1925. Aquarelle Gastebuch I was drawn in reverse. The back of the glass was sprinkled with a layer of silicone, then colored with eyeshadow, in which objects of all kinds are encrusted. Bottles, containers, lighters, enamels, candies, all products potentially coming from the shelves of a supermarket. Each element of this large collage is transformed, on the opposite side of the plate, into one of the forms of the abstract composition.
