Mixed media artist Don Scott exhibits a series of original abstract Polaroid prints at Highline Coffee Art Space in Worthington, May 3 – June 30, 2021.
Funded by a resource grant from the Greater Columbus Arts Council, the Transformative Impressions series came about from Scott’s desire to experiment with newly-formulated Polaroid film using techniques from his work with similar film originally developed in the 1970s.
“Thanks to a group of Dutch entrepreneurs, some of the Polaroid products that I worked with years ago were brought back from the dead, although with different properties,” Scott explains. “It’s taken some time for me to discover how to make the film express itself to my satisfaction, especially since for the last several years I’ve been learning to create from digital images. Quite frankly, making this series proved to be one of the most challenging projects I’ve undertaken in my 50+ years as a visual artist, but in the long term, it was exhilarating. Due to the expense of using the film in a trial-and-error process, it’s highly unlikely I would have moved forward without the grant from the Arts Council. Thanks to them, I’m motivated to experiment even more with this re-invented analog marvel.”
After a more than 30-year career in public broadcasting in three states and later as co-founder, director, and curator of the Art Space, Scott is devoting more of his time to his personal art, using a variety of mediums to create works primarily rooted in the photographic image.
“Don always delivers something a bit different when he exhibits, so we're happy to see his fourth solo show at the Art Space,” says Christie Bruffy, owner and manager of Highline Coffee Co. “From the beginning, our mission has always been to present the diverse work of central Ohio artists.”
