Scott Scherer - Artist
Born and raised in Nebraska, Scott has had a passion for the western outdoors and its wildlife since childhood. An avid outdoorsman, Scott lives in the Black Hills of South Dakota with his wife and two children. A mostly self-taught artist, Scott began sculpting since 2003 and had his first piece cast in the summer of 2003. He tries to convey realistic action and proportion while at the same time not getting too detailed. His works are a hybrid of impressionism with a touch of realism “Sculptures have to look good from every angle and so I look for different movements animals make and try to capture this with my camera or sketch pad before I put it in clay or on canvas. Whether a painting or a sculpture, I want to put just enough information in the piece to make it read without over doing it”. Scotts work has won multiple awards in just the few shows he has entered.
Scott only began painting big game wildlife and landscapes in oil in 2013 and it was not until the late summer of 2014 that he began to dedicate more time painting. His style, like his sculptures is impressionistic with a painterly flare. His paintings depict the great landscapes and big game which encompass the mountain west. He makes annual treks into the backcountry with his camera, sketch pad and portable easel to gather as much study information as possible. These studies will help in the development of a finished painting. In the summer of 2015, Scott attended a painting workshop in Victor Idaho with Scott Christensen.
Scott's art has been shown in galleries in Jackson Wyoming, Cody Wyoming and Bozeman Montana dating back to 2004. Although sculpting for a relatively short time, Scott's works are receiving very high reviews from collectors and peers in the fine art community. Beginning in the fall of 2015, Scott will manage this online gallery and participate in art shows throughout the west. All available works can be purchase through this website.
He does his research of big game and landscapes throughout the Black Hills, and in Wyoming, Montana and Colorado. My ultimate goal is to remind people of the wildlife and surrounding landscapes they have seen and at the same time provide a work of art that they will enjoy for years to come.
