The light-infused work by Scout Cuomo explores the intersection of the human and natural world. As an impressionistic and abstract impressionistic full-time working artist, Scout works predominately in the mediums of painting and drawing. She is best known for her “Swimmers” series, which portrays people floating in and exploring life under water. By embedding pigment in thick coats of epoxy, she infuses her pieces with light to create a glass-like gloss. The end result is a surprisingly delicate, three-dimensional painting. Subjects range from underwater views to landscapes to animals painted on glass using the same process. An artist industriously producing new work, she’s sold over 400 original paintings nationally and internationally.
Scout is dedicated to supporting her local economy by collaborating with other community artists and makers, from blacksmiths to graphic designers. These pieces made for ASSEMBLE are celebrations of avian friends. The frames are made by local artist, Katie Richardson, making each piece a collaborative celebration of two local artists.
