SCOTT H. H. GREENWALT

SCOTT HARRISON HOPWOOD GREENWALT

Artist Statement

Contemplating the inevitable rise and demise of complex systems throughout history, my work explores notions of a manipulated, beautified world on the constant verge of collapse. Envisioning moments in time that reflect a tumult lurking just beneath the surface, threatening to rupture with magnificent force. A place where spiritual effluvia roams through space, leaving behind husks of the living things it once occupied, where new forms of life will again flourish in time.
