Fine Artist, Scott Idleman, selected by Sundance Cinemas via StudioVox for Gallery Exhibition
StudioVox is a Los Angeles-based online network for creative professionals and artists. StudioVox serves as the chosen submission and curation platform for artwork to be exhibited at Sundance Cinemas' fine art galleries.
The artist's work was chosen from a group of local artists who submitted their work for consideration to Sundance via an exclusive partnership with StudioVox.
Idleman's exhibition, "Biota: the Beauty of Micro vs. Macro" runs from September 1 through January 10 and includes contemporary abstract paintings inspired by the representation of microcosms, imparted by aerial views, microscopic imagery, patterns in nature, and Aboriginal art.
According to Idleman the comprehensive theme of all of his artwork is connectivity.
"The rhythm and patterns of my mark-making, though abstract and stylized, has a familiarity,"
Originally trained as a graphic designer, Idleman returned to the alchemy of paint, ink and texture in the fine arts realm. Mining his childhood obsession with doodling and self-taught batik making, Idleman developed a technique of colorizing thinned gesso then drawing and mark-making with it to build up lines that can be filled with washes of color and gloss. The raised gesso lines create shadows and relief that change dramatically in different light sources.
Idleman was born in Stamford, Connecticut, grew up in Mississippi, and Illinois, eventually moving to New York City before settling in San Francisco where he's resided since 1992.
He attended Cleveland Art Institute for Foundations then Kansas City Art Institute where he received a B.F.A. in Graphic Design with minors in fibers, photography and painting.
