Baltz, R. Scott
At the core of Scott Baltz' work is an examination of the energy and movement within the landscape. Paintings evolve from intimate experiences, filtered by the passage of time, memory and imagination. The process begins with pencil sketches from location, or done from digital photography, though many times compositions are created purely from the memory of experience. All paintings are executed in the studio environment where color decisions are made as the paintings progress. The beauty of the process gives energy and life to a piece.
For the past several years Scott Baltz has been working thematically on images revolving around transitional light. The challenges and joys of the creative process sustain his passion, artistic energy and well being in life.
