Samara Scott (2015) Drunk Complexions

An artists’ book translating ideas of materiality onto the glossy, ‘Mediaeval Miami sunset’ page. 

Following Scott’s exhibition, Harvest, at The Sunday Painter (2015), Drunk Complexions depicts a series of sub astral landscapes and rock pools housed in domestic vessels, “as they form, ripen, decay, crust over and disintegrate”. Printed offset litho, in neon pink and orange, the colours of ‘a Mediaeval Miami sunset’, a deletion chemical was applied to the plates, with a variety of materials; producing an inky silver film over Scott’s images of consumer detritus and material landscapes.
