ABOUT THE ARTIST

 

Born in New Orleans Louisiana in 1969, Scott Ewen has been working for the past 20 years as a contemporary oil painter combining attributes of both realism and abstraction. 

 

Rather than capturing single moments, the paintings employ bold colors and organic shapes, frequently rendered in motion and over time. Subjects exist on the edge of a complete breakdown of representation while held together by a strong sense of composition and the details that speak to not only the form but also the passage of time.

 

Ewen graduated in 1999 from the Museum School of Fine Arts Boston and Tufts University where he studied photography, drawing, and art history.
