Detail - In The Forest I Can Almost Hear You, and Tri-Hex Green, by Alexander C. Scott

My collection of works by the brilliant artist Alexander C. Scott has been over twenty-five years in the making. We met in Boston (where he still resides) many years ago and he has remained one of my dearest friends ever since. I became an instant fan the moment he first shared his extraordinary artistic talent with me.

I’ve followed Scott throughout—from his major exhibit at the ICA in Boston; to his several print appearances, including Wallpaper magazine, Elle Decor, Monocle, and Artforum; to his recent showing at the super chic W hotel. As you can see I’ve acquired quite a few pieces representing various periods over the last couple of decades, and I’ve placed many times this in the interiors I’ve created for my clients both here and abroad!

I’ve saved a few of my Scott acquisitions to hang in my next home and office—this painted Pink Stag triptych (below) and a sensational Scott photograph for instance—you can be sure to see these gracing my walls in the not so distant future.
