ABOUT THE ARTIST

A native of Omaha, Nebraska, Scott Mossman earned bachelorÔÇÖs degrees in Journalism, art history and fine arts at UNO in 1980 and 1982 respectively and moved to Chicago in the peak of the post-modern era where he earned an MFA in painting and sculpture at University of Illinois at Chicago in 1985 under the tutelage of Rod Carswell and Martin Puryear. MossmanÔÇÖs decidedly post-minimalist sculpture deals with relationships - formal and contextual. His architecturally-influenced forms, flavored by trips to Asia (China, Japan, and Tibet) and Europe as well as a passion for pre-gothic and early modernist forms (among them Corbusier, Loos, and Wright) comment on the creation and purpose of sculpture and its relationship to architectural forms in a space and other objects (security alarms, hand dryers, heating, and cooling units) that inhabit a space. He has exhibited throughout the country since graduation and most recently had one-person shows at the Noyes Center in Evanston, The University Club, Heaven Gallery, and Ignition Project Space.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Mossman's decidedly post-minimalist sculpture deals with relationships - formal and contextual. His architecturally-influenced forms, flavored by trips to Asia (China, Japan, and Tibet) and Europe as well as a passion for pre-gothic and early modernist forms (among them Corbusier, Loos, and Wright) comment on the creation and purpose of sculpture and its relationship to architectural forms in a space and other objects (security alarms, hand dryers, heating, and cooling units) that inhabit a space. They walk a thin line between the utilitarian and the purely abstract.
