Scott Brodie’s career is defined by the genre of still-life painting and depiction of ordinary objects. Speaking of his work, the artist says, “I see the shopping bags, packets of Sweet’N Low, or tchotchkes on a shelf, as the meaningful objects in our lives. The image is just an excuse to make a painting. The true subject is the color, arrangement, and tactility of the painting medium.” An avid traveler, Brodie’s work has taken him to destinations such as the American southwest; Pompeii, Italy; Suzhou, China; and Dogtown, Massachusetts. He later converts his onsite studies into larger works on canvas in his studio, located in New York’s Capital Region.
