“I like the physical nature of building the sculpture—it seems very old-fashioned and traditional. The idea of the material itself–it’s friendly, flexible, there’s a glow from in it. I’m the full-service artist—doing it all at the moment. I like the aspect of the low-tech tools that I need to make something like this. In the beginning [it was] an X-acto knife, masking tape and glue—now it’s the screw gun. So that hasn’t changed much at all—the directness of it, that I could begin to shape this, I can make this very plastic without any special process. There is that sense of one person building this thing—it becomes a “feat”—the whole thing isn’t about that but within the world we live in right now, it makes it a kind of tribal ritual piece; the fact that it was done by the human hand. [That] takes people back to the place in their life where they remember pasting things together [and so] understanding the process.”

Scott Fife has been exhibiting his sculptures and drawings since 1976 in galleries in Chicago, Seattle, Los Angeles and Vancouver, BC, and in museums including the Frye Museum (Seattle), the Tacoma Art Museum, the Boise Art Museum, the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture (Spokane). His work was included in the 2008 Art on Paper Biennial at the Weatherspoon Museum of Art in Greensboro, NC. The Missoula Art Museum, Missoula, Montana hosted a solo show of his work in the winter of 2010, and one of his sculptures was included in the Seattle Art Museum exhibition “Kurt” in the spring of 2010. His work has been written about in the Winter 2010 issue of Sculpture Review magazine. Scott lives and works in Seattle.
