Scott Gardiner
at Whitespace
21 Jul 2010 - 8 Aug 2010

Added by Dib Scott Gardiner grew up in Auckland and received a Master of Visual Arts (Hons) from Auckland Institute of Technology in 2003.

Scott's landscape paintings are inspired by change; changes caused by the natural world - by tectonic plates shifting and colliding, glacial ice retreating, and deserts advancing. First and foremost, his paintings are about Scott's distinct spiritual relationship with nature. An avid surfer and survivor of the 2004 tsunami, which devastated his then home of Sri Lanka, there is no mistaking his love of the land around him. This is presented visually in barren, achingly drawn landscapes across an ethereal background of colour. In these otherworldly scapes, there is a timelessness and serenity undercut with an uneasy temporality that reflects Scott's environmental consciousness with a spiritual essence.

Scott's art has been exhibited in New Zealand, Australia, and Los Angeles, USA. His work is represented in public collections such as the Wallace Arts Trust as well as private collections and he has been a finalist in the Wallace Art Awards each year since 2007.

Gallery Hours: Tues-Fri 11-6pm, Sat 11-4pm
