Scott Harris is an aluminum artist and sculptor working and showing primarily in the Southeast. Born in Fargo, North Dakota, Scott re-located to the mountains of NC in 1996. He completed his BA in Visual Arts from Brevard College with an emphasis in both painting and sculpture. It was there he first experimented with painting on aluminum due to its flexible surface. As the process evolved, he discovered the reflective quality of the material added depth and movement to his art. Scott is thankful to have been sharing his unique process as a full time artist since 2007.
I love painting on aluminum because I enjoy creating imagery that exhibits the contrast between a warm, organic image on a cold, industrial surface. The sculptures I create using aluminum allow me to bring new life to the material as well. I've been featured in several publications including “Carolina Home and Gardens,” and “Greensboro Monthly.” I have completed many personal and corporate commissions, including a 14ft mobile in the PNC Building in Raleigh, NC, as well as a 16ft sculpture as the centerpiece of NorthPark commercial development and sculptures for Tanger Outlets in Mebane, NC and Maryland. My paintings are also being exhibited at the Raleigh Convention Center and at the Durham Center. My work is featured in galleries in Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia, the Carolinas, and North Dakota.
