Expert Ease: Artist Scott Kilgour

Scott KilgourThe Scottish-American artist Scott Kilgour has a linear style inspired by Art Nouveau-based Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
Studio | 800 square feet
Location | Broadway & Franklin, Tribeca, NY
Medium/Services | Drawings, paintings, sculpture and printmaking – specifically in silver and gold leaf.
Projects | Kilgour’s expression of continuous line has delivered two distinct, yet connected bodies of work: Knots & Roses.
Knots | Knots and Celtic Interlace symbolize simultaneous spatial opposition, unity and interplay and allow for continuous lines to create harmony.
Roses | Kilgour examines the interflow between the petal and corolla. Each rose is unique, defining a spatial pattern through optical illusion. Scott’s work conveys a sense of naturalism while hinting toward graphic modernism.
Upcoming Gallery Showing | “Knot” garden installation, Kingston Manor, Wiltshire, England
Business Mantra | Elegance through Aesthetics
Extracurricular | Kilgour has an affinity for the environment. In his work “Trash Life,” he explores the role of trash as an extension of ourselves and the value that trash has in our lives. This body of work was dedicated to the National Resources Defense Council, which works to safeguard the earth.
