About the Artist
"When I create these one-of-a-kind pieces, I pour my heart and soul into the work. My hope is that when someone interacts with the art, that they feel something, anything. Everything I create comes from a place of authenticity. Emotion and energy drive my work."
Who is Scott Peters?
Scott Peters is an award-winning abstract artist based in the St. Louis area, who creates soulful, small and large-scale acrylic and mixed-media works on panel, canvas, paper, and vinyl. He uses improvisational skills learned as a jazz musician for his intuitive process; as when playing a jazz solo, his artistic vision takes flight and spills onto his media with passion, energy, and freedom. Using a bold palette and strong textural components created with everyday objects, his work reflects the complexity of human emotion and experience. Employing exoskeletal surfaces and rich textures which magnify and illuminate, the works extend beyond the boundaries of the canvas, welcoming the viewer to see more deeply into boundless possibilities.
What makes Scott Peters Art authentic?
This work is a reflection of his ongoing healing experience and journey through suffering and pain from past trauma. It helped him find his voice. At some point and at some level, everyone experiences the pain and trauma of being human. For all the people that live in the shadows, unable or afraid to emerge from life’s trauma, he's been there. But that’s not where the story ends for him. It’s out of those experiences that he emerged, to connect with one another through art. It’s his language of love to heal, to grow, and to learn how to be human. This is an invitation to join him on his journey as he continues to evolve. He hopes that others who see his work will connect with their own experiences and discover their own paths to healing.
