The Artist Says:

At this time where I find so many friends and acquaintances asking what they REALLY should be doing with their lives;..I am incredibly grateful to know with certainty that I am doing exactly what I was meant to do in my own life.
Painting , teaching and helping other aspiring artists, and making attempts to create something beautiful or interesting is my life's work.


Collectors Say:

"The colors,..the colors! Add to that the layers and you have a visual treasure every time my eyes rest on your paintings"
-Susan Kreutzer



Dealers Say:

"The unforgettable oils of Scott Mattlin gently embrace his viewers at once with their immediacy, elegance, and by an irresistible call for engagement. Scott's choice of subject matter, his masterful ability for composition, and his brilliant talent for the juxtaposition of light and shadow- all evoke a powerful old world feel, yet with an irrefutable modern edge.

Vibrant, passionate and tender, these eloquent works speak to a universal calling; the yearning for beauty, meaning, and connection within an increasingly disenfranchised modern day world"
-Virginia Wentworth Barnes
owner- Churchill Gallery, Newburyport, Ma.

Overview:


"Mattlin's pastoral landscapes reach for solitude and often achieve a level of companionship, like a presence in the room; a hand on your shoulder." - Western Art and Architecture

"If you can create a painting with just enough left to the imagination, that's thought-provoking and stimulates an emotional charge, then you've got a great painting. I think that now I'm on the path that I want to be on."-Scott Mattlin

"Having struggled so long to find that path, he's unlikely ever to become complacent with success"-Norman Kolpas- Southwest Art magazine

Biography

Scott Mattlin is an artist with a deep and passionate appreciation for beauty in the natural world and within the human spirit. This enthusiastic and sensitive joy is reflected strongly in his artwork. His work is executed in a vibrant, impressionistic style, which - while still retaining its representational roots, incorporates abstract elements, resulting in a uniquely contemporary union. Mattlin paints the private world to which he bears witness. Whether it be an intimate moment captured between mother and child, a glimpse into the solitary reverie of a ballet dancer, or a private view into that sacred world of the timeless nude Scott's choice of subject matter, his masterful ability for extemporaneous composition, and his brilliant talent for the juxtaposition of light and shadow all evoke a powerful old world feel, yet with an irresistible modern edge.

As a young man, Scott traveled throughout North America trying his hand at a dizzying number of careers and trades. Nothing truly resonated however, until his childhood passion for painting was re-kindled. At nearly 30 years of age, Scott's art education began in Southern California. While preparing to enter the Art Center School of Design in California he developed a friendly relationship with a group of successful local artists who agreed to mentor him; among them, internationally respected wildlife artist Joe Garcia. Scott abandoned his plans for formal education and embarked on an intensive four-year period of study and painting that was to change his life forever.


Since that time, Scott's dedication to creating beautiful and expressive paintings has manifested broadly into the development of a wide range of enthusiastic collectors, exhibitions, and awards. Scott's work has appeared in numerous feature articles in magazines such as Southwest Art, Lattitudes Magazine, Western Art and Architecture, American Art Collector, and others. He has appeared in a wide variety of art and instructional publications. As a member of the Oil Painters of America, he has been juried into regional and national OPA events, as well as the prestigious Colorado Governor's Invitational Art Show, as well as a wide range of juried national exhibitions. As a veteran art instructor, he has taught master watercolor workshops nationwide at the invitation of the Grumbacher Company, as well as appearing as a keynote speaker at their national conferences.

Scott's work hangs in private and corporative collections- both at home and abroad. During his years of representation in Alaska from 1992 to 1999 Scott's work was featured in 7 exciting and successful one-man shows there; and he was named the official painter of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race for five consecutive years. His rendering of Mount Denali was given by the governor of Alaska to the city of New York, where it is hangs in permanent display in Fire Station Number One in commemoration to the firefighters who gave their lives on September 11, 2001.


Scott's work is represented by a number of fine galleries across the United States, and he continues to exhibit in a select group of invitational masters exhibitions each year.

Scott and his wife Lisa are currently living in Denver, Colorado, where Scott maintains his new studio.
