"Sam Scott is and always has been a painter in pursuit of Beauty. This is an uncomfortable phrase to the cynical, but Scott's beauty resides only at great depths. It is hard-won and tentative. It emerges for this artist from the shadows as well as by the light of his noon Santa Fe sky. When he leaves the comfort of home, working in ways that are new to him, Scott travels well and freely. He generously reveals to us with his mark how it went and who he met along the way.
"Acknowledging teachers in his past, Philip Guston, in quirky line and bold form, Nathan Olivera's figural stance and Clyfford Still, the impossible task-master, Sam Scott cherishes their presence in his life and work. He will never forget. But Scott alone paints with such a generous heart and truth in his own unique mark, that if one is lucky enough to experience both the artist and his work, it becomes vastly clear that Camus was right."--Jennifer Doran, Robischon Gallery, Denver
