Art Is Experience

Scott Listfield’s “The Lost World.” Opening…

Opening Thursday, September 29th, 2022 at Talon Gallery in Portland, Oregon is artist Scott Listfield’s remarkable solo exhibition, “The Misplaced Entire world.”

Of the exhibition, Scott writes:

My name is Scott Listfield. I paint astronauts and, occasionally, dinosaurs.

Which is been the opening line of my artist assertion since I very first started portray astronauts, a extended time back now. In much more new years, some web person will from time to time pop up to remark “Hey! What at any time took place to the ‘sometimes dinosaurs’?” Effectively, random world wide web human being, this following show is for you.

I have uncovered myself thinking about dinosaurs currently. I’ve been viewing, over and around again, the extraordinary new documentary collection Prehistoric Earth, on Apple Television, narrated by David Attenborough. I’ve also been thinking, not for the initial time, about dinosaurs as a metaphor, throughout a time when we appear increasingly driven to comply with in their significant footsteps towards extinction. And through a time when sure political factions look intent on sending us back in time to the stone age. I want to try to remember a simpler time in my lifestyle, when I could sit and draw dinosaurs for hrs and then go dig a massive gap in my yard for the reason that I imagined it’s possible there may possibly be a Stegosaurus down there someplace (there was not). And so I made an overall present of dinosaur paintings.
