APSU art student presents “To The Teeth” April 4-8


APSU art student Jason Scott introduces us to his senior show with a quote from Hermann Hesses Siddhartha: This Stone Is Stone; it is also animal, God and Buddha. I do not respect and love it because it was one thing and will become something else, but because it has already long been everything and always is everything.

APSU art student Jason Scott introduces us to his senior show with a quote from Hermann Hesse's “Siddhartha”: “This Stone Is Stone; it is also animal, God and Buddha. I do not respect and love it because it was one thing and will become something else, but because it has already long been everything and always is everything.”

Scott also subscribes to this belief in universal connection. “Within us lies the potential to be every other person and every other thing,” he says. “The work in this exhibit can be divided into three distinct categories— The Fetish, The Cycle and The Human—that are tied together by this premise.”

Scott's "To The Teeth," an exhibit of ceramic sculptures, will be on display April 4-8 in the Trahern Student Gallery, Room 108.

The opening reception is scheduled for 6-9 p.m., Monday, April 4.

Scott adds that each category also represents his path in becoming a ceramic sculptor, from decision to transition and culmination.

The son of Lonnie B. Scott of Enterprise, Ala., and Heidi M. Scott of Krautheim, Germany, Scott will receive a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art with an emphasis in Ceramic Sculpture in May.
