Statement

Ivor Scott in his studio.

Gaming is fun, exciting, and isolating. Gamers retreat to­­­­ artificial experiences and disconnect from reality through video games. My work isolates and archives killing fields and the bodies of combatants from digital realities into painting, partially to reinvest these images with emotional impact, and negotiating how extreme violence has become devoid of meaning in the realm of these war zones recreated for game purposes.

 


IVOR SCOTT is an American artist best known for his video game paintings that are inspired by screenshots from first person shooter games.
