The multimedia artist Gregory Scott takes a pranksterish approach to the boundaries between art—particularly traditional painting, framed and ensconced in museums—and messy, human life. Sometimes, as in his Outside the Frame video series, he insinuates his body into classic artworks, for instance having himself walk down the impossible M.C. Escher-like staircase in a museum photograph as a gallerygoer sits below, unperturbed. In his Impositionsseries, meanwhile, the artist photographs himself with paintings of his body parts superimposed over the real-life limbs they depict, creating a trompe l'oeil effect.

Drawing on the legacy of Magritte and other Surrealists, Scott's work has been featured in exhibitions at Chicago's Museum of Contemporary Photography and the Indiana University Art Museum.
