Scott Brems’ work explores the deeper emanations of the natural world. His acrylic and mixed media paintings, with their refined surface quality, bold brushstrokes, and colorful shapes breathe new life into traditional landscape. Encounters with nature resonate even in his contemporary abstractions—motion found in a windblown sky, abstract patterns observed on a red rock canyon wall. Enriched by a lifelong relationship with the American West, Brems’ naturalistic reimaginings reach beyond the visual experience to evoke the visceral. Brems studied painting at Arizona State University and the atelier-oriented Scottsdale Artists’ School. Compelled to expression, he produces work encompassing a diverse range of styles from his Arizona studio.
