jeff scott

Scott's contemporary artworks have been shown at The Andy Warhol Museum, The Dallas Museum of Art, The Brooks Museum of Art and The National Trust for Historic Preservation. Scott has had numerous one man and group exhibition across the United States and his works are featured in the Permanent Collections of Ralph Lauren, Elvis Presley Enterprises, President Bill Clinton, Art Curator E.A. Carmean Jr, The National Trust For Historic Preservation, Disney and The Dallas Museum of Art. Art historian, author, museum director and curator, E.A Carmean, Jr., an early collector of Scott's groundbreaking works,  wrote the foreword to Scott's 2006 book, Elvis: The Personal Archives ( Channel Photographics ). Scott has since published three more acclaimed Photographic books, entitled Notes From A Kitchen, two of which have received the 2012 James Beard Foundation Award for Photography. Scott’s latest body of work examines America’s hidden places and urban scenes from the 1950’s, 60's and 70’s, These gritty, enigmatic mixed media works focus on ambiguous activities in mysterious locations, with undercurrents of foreboding dramatic action. The Cinema Paintings reveal a hidden Los Angeles underworld, evoking a shadow culture that's provocatively cinematic and visually intense.
