Scott Gilbert Crown,2020 Acrylic on panel, 11 x 14
Crown was created as a reminder of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross for us. Pierced for our transgressions, the King of kings bore a crown of thorns on his head. “Corona” is etched into the wood. Though we are experiencing the devastation of a virus that is sweeping our world, we can have total peace in Christ knowing their is power in the blood to cover anything we walk through earth side. We can say with confidence, because of Christ, it is well.
Welcome to Scott Gilbert Art! Scott Gilbert is a professional realist painter who works in Houston, Texas. He has been painting since 2010 and founded Scott Gilbert Art in 2020. He has been an avid angler his entire life, which inspires much of his work. This is particularly evident through his “Fruit Lure Series” as well as his “Lure Series.” He enjoys creating realistic paintings of ordinary items in an extraordinary manner. His Bacon Heart as well as Chicken Nugget are just a couple of examples of this.
His passion for painting began in 2010 while studying sculpture at the University of Houston-Clear Lake. For a couple of years, he split his time between sculpture and painting. One day, after completing one of his wood sculptures “Cesarean in Wood” he decided to take the same concept to the canvas producing the award winning “Cesarean.” This was an awakening for him as a painter. From this point, he began to paint almost exclusively. Scott believes there is a kinship in what we see, what we know and the everyday pleasures we consume. He conveys his vision through a timeless realistic painting style; however, his concepts stray from traditional content. He likes to work in clean backgrounds and subjects that invite the viewer to look beyond what they know of real life. In marrying traditional realism and the playfulness of known objects, he can both give nod to still life works of old while enticing the modern viewer with simple joys from their own day to day lives. The viewer can take comfort in the approachability of his work and then be surprised by what was not initially expected.
