Scott bringing his wares to the Filberg

February 14th and 15th, Saturday and Sunday. from 11 till 4pm.

Memories of my travels 'Gaudi perspective

Visitors at  Brian Scott’s studio ask “what influenced you to be an artist?”  His immediate response is “I’m an air force brat.  As a youth he lived on the South Coast of England, then moved on to France (#2 Fighter Wing),  later lived in Baden Baden and Lahr in West Germany and of course Ontario and BC.

AS a young age he saw the Mona Lisa smile, Rouen Cathedral,  King Ludwig’s  Castle, and the Tivoli gardens.   Most weekends his father Ralph Scott would load up his older children and have a ramble through the European countryside.  Every town or village had a story and an artifact of its history.  At some time in the last 2,000 years either a major battle was fought, the heir to the French thrown jumped off a cliff to escape the British, or a great church or castle was built and subsequently became a romantic ruin.

These adventures were etched on Scott’s impressionable brain at a young age.  He has spent the last 41 years trying to fathom and express those early exuberant emotions in both his writings and paintings.  As Picasso so aptly stated “it is the child in the man (or woman) who is the artist.”

Brian Scott’s Filberg show runs from February  13th and 14th,  Saturday and Sunday.  from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
