Adam Scott: Paint by Number
American landscape as backdrop to violence
Violence as backdrop to the American landscape
Repetition as psychological violence (for the viewer)
Repetition as physical violence (for the artist's body)
The American landscape as a fiction of our collective imagination
The American landscape as a myth that is forced
Upon our perception by: early landscape painting,
cinema, photography, westward colonial expansion..." –Adam Scott, from Paint by Number
