Fine visual arts created in New York's Hudson Valley

Scott Allen Roberts is a Los Angeles native living and practicing in New York. A fine art major from the University of Southern California and post graduate from Parsons the New School, Scotts’ observational landscapes and figures explore cosmological, ontological, and phenomenological concepts surrounding the ideas of existentialism and the human condition. In the history of landscape art there have always been questions of how humanity fits into its environment. Having experienced close familial death early on in his life, themes of mortality both haunt and enlighten his work. The burning human questions of ‘Where do we go when we die?’, ‘Where did the world come from?’, or ‘What is the meaning of it all?’ were the first of many that Scott pondered in his youth and contemplated in observation of landscapes. 


Roberts’ work borrows from many styles to create imagery that is bold, graphic and fantastical. His art asks humanities questions of the unknown, enticing the viewer through vibrant color, larger scale formats, and hints of the decorative. The viewer is drawn into an allegory filled with metaphors. From a contemporary perspective, Roberts typically employs the use of different artifacts, reflections, cast shadows, and portals such as windows or doors as a question of where our actual and virtual lives intersect, and the illusions that accompany both sides. Scott continues to explore his personal journey through art and allows the viewer insight into not just his, but their own deeper feelings with the work. Scott is fresh on the New York art scene and having already sold to private collectors has begun to promote his work commercially.
