Gregory Scott has always blurred the lines between painting and photography, incorporating paintings he did of himself, or parts of his body, back into his photographs. The resulting images were both humorous and odd, challenging the viewer’s perception of photographic truth. Then, at the age of 49, Scott decided to go back to school to extend his knowledge of video and art history. Having successfully merged his love of painting and photographs, his interest turned to video and its ability to move and manipulate still images.

In 2008, Gregory Scott graduated with a body of work that blended all three of his artistic interests. Continuing to use himself as the model, Scott creates narrative pieces which use illusion and surprise to tackle issues ranging from identity and loneliness, to the way the art world has pigeonholed the various mediums in which he works. In his pieces, Scott challenges the definitions placed on photography, painting and video, expanding its discourse.

Gregory Scott was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan in 1957 and received his Bachelor degree from the Institute of Design at IIT in 1979 and his Master of Fine Art from Indiana University in 2008.
