Artist: Cameron Scott; Artwork : Leaving home; Honor award, April 2021 edition.

Artist: Cameron Scott
Country : United Kingdom

Biography: Cameron is a sculptor carving in wood, creating relief, wall mounted stories around his life.  The places the artist has been – Kintore, Aberdeenshire, Scotland (his home village), his time in Italy, his recent move to South West England; memories of his childhood, looking out the bedroom window in a small Scottish village hoping for a different life, being a student in the 60s in Aberdeen, working in fashion houses in Italy; and also the people from his life, my parents, my family, and artists who have influenced him.. All these jumbled thoughts become a narrative, slightly surreal, relief carving.

He works in lime wood, which is a beautiful wood to work with, it is easy to work, yet holds its edge so well. It also turns a lovely warm colour over the years

He has exhibited widely from Saatchi Gallery, Centrespace Bristol, Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution, Portico Gallery Manchester, Weston Park Shropshire, Grain Gallery Sherbourne, Cartwright Gallery Bradford, Tricycle Theatre, London, Salford Art Gallery, Castle Cary Art Gallery, Ikon Gallery.

He taught in art schools for 25 years finishing up as a Head of School of Art in Burnley, Lancashire, England.
