Scott Eakin works with acrylic paint on wood panel surfaces. Countless lines, bars and bands of brilliant color are stacked upon each other in a meticulous process to create the graphic, geometric impact of the paintings. At closer look one also finds countless miniature landscapes hidden within the lines. In his work Eakin investigates interactions between edges and intersections, planning and happenstance, intellect and intuition.
Eakin is an Atlanta based artist originally from Illinois. His work has been displayed in Atlanta recently in the Atlanta Gallery Collective: Ponce City Market, Hartsfield-Jackson Airport, Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles Show House, Switch Modern, MOCA GA, and Marcia Wood Gallery. Exhibitions have also been in New Jersey and throughout the Southeast.
