Scott Gardiner explores the topics of change and temporality, environmental consciousness and mortality. The visual appeal of Gardiner's paintings resides in the contrast between the solid, linear structures and the skilfully executed soft forms of clouds and sea. The juxtaposition of theses elements evokes both the timelessness and serenity of nature as well as the rapid change and industrial expansion that is defining of our times. Gardiner's decision to introduce new methods of production via the use of modern printing technologies, allows the artist to examine modes of representation and their influence on the reading of an image while also questioning the relationships between labour/value and process/meaning that have underpinned his practice.
