Jac Scott

Artist, Gallerist

Jac Scott is an internationally renowned, multi-award winning visual artist who investigates environmental issues. She is interested in the cohabitation of art and science and how this relationship enriches our understanding of the world. The gaps and the differences in our experiences deliver fractured realities that profile the earth as an enigma. To try and unravel this mystery Scott researches and collaborates with specialists from other disciplines, including scientists and geographers. The tension between approaches, objective scientific verses subjective artistic, the latter further skewed by emotional and philosophical underwritings, creates dynamic outcomes that ignite curiosity and debate. Jac Scott MRBS has been an active associate member of the Royal British Society of Sculptors since 2006. Her commitment to the discipline of sculpture is expounded in her reference books The Language of Mixed-Media Sculpture, (published 2014), and Textile Perspectives in Mixed-Media Sculpture (published 2003 and reprinted numerous times), both published by The Crowood Press Ltd. Monographs Excess, published by Strathclyde University, 2009 (to complement her solo exhibition in the Collins Gallery, Glasgow) and Beautiful Dystopia, published by University of Central Lancashire, 2013 (to complement the sixteen-month arts residency in the School of Built and Natural Environment) are available upon request. Her exhibition profile includes a sustained catalogue of solo and group exhibitions including galleries: V&A, London, Sheffield Millennium Galleries, Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester, Commonwealth Institute, London, Museum for Textiles, Toronto, Canada and Art London, Chelsea. Scott’s practice has featured in several television programmes and appeared widely in the art and national press. She has won numerous awards from both the arts and environment sectors and regularly receives commissions from the public and education sectors. read full statement
