Recent Feature Exhibition: Feeding Fish
General Hardware Contemporary, April 2019
Feeding Fish is a new body of work by Scott Everingham, which explores painting as shipwrecks – both in their ultimate ending and in their potential for discovery. Using paint language to describe the tangible: architecture, submarine life, and as found treasure, Everingham continues to explore narrative and fiction in abstraction.The process of each is an encounter of an environment that studies the parallels of painting with the inevitability of life and death; of one vessels’ ending and the gift of its deterioration.
In Scott Everingham’s recent works he uses abstract paint language to describe a certain experience that is loosely and paradoxically related to our reality and perception. Each hopes to establish a strange and yielding utopia in which to enter, explore, and determine.
