After this Spring's and showing of new work on glass and lucite in the Bodies of Light exhibit at the ECA+ Gallery, the spring led into summer picking up with 10 commissions to diligently work through. Scout is starting to finish these larger private projects up and and the studio is ramping up production for September shows in Western Massachusetts at the Hope & Olive in Greenfield and the Cup N' Top in Florence, MA. Scout will attend SOWA in Boston in October with a booth among hundreds of inspirational artisans and finish up the fall with Open Studios at the Arts & Industry Building located in Florence, MA November 13th & 14th.
There's so much inspiration to be found in Western Massachusetts summers. Scout's new body of work celebrates the light sifting through cool forests, secret swim spots, puckered blue berries, jeweled dew drops in morning fields, and warm starry nights. Many of these pieces are resin layered paintings on glass and lucite. In this process, Cuomo layers painting between candy coatings of epoxy to create a subtle three dimensional painterly surface. The effect is luminous.
Alongside the work for the new exhibit, the studio is becoming a veritable ark of blissed out birds & beasts. Birds of various shapes and sizes are being celebrated in paintings layered on glass with handmade steel frames.
Scout plays away on one of her many side projects, epoxy dipped papier-mâché animal heads. It's already crowded in here and it only get's more crowded by the day. Keep your eyes peeled and mantles clear because these peaceful creatures will be looking for homes before you know it!
A Brand New Site!
What's that you say? Scout has unleashed her long awaited new site into the world!? (haha) Its true, it's gorgeous and you're here!
