ABOUT THE ARTIST:
J. Scott Lytle
Im not going to try and gaslight you into thinking that my artistic soul travels beyond the deepest abyss of inner feelings and thought. Nor will not use post modernist words like re-deconstructionism, undecidability, or dissemination. I hate that shit. I'm an artist who likes to paint things that interest me. I tend to use bright, loud and aggressive colors in concert with interesting, fun figures and objects. Though, when I feel a need, I will address the social, economical and political issues of the day. My true aim is to have people to walk into a room a say "Wow! that’s a cool painting.” Its as easy and as simple as that.
I grew up in Tucson Arizona in a happy Beaver Gleaver family. I have a Bachelor of Studio Fine Arts degree from the University of Arizona and I attended grad school at Arizona State studying Fine Art Photography and painting I moved to Southern California in 1990 where Ive been a professional photographer working as a photojournalist for daily newspapers (23 years) and magazines and in the corporate and commercial world. In the past Ive always painted but in the last two years Ive been painting full time and will continue to.
