Scott Paulk

Scott Paulk




''I have been working in a realist style for the past 20 years using the medium of colored pencil and acrylic paint. Originally my subjects were urban street scenes capturing reflections in glass windows, colorful and tenuous neon signs, streets and automobiles. The mechanical aspects of these scenes then led to works depicting aircraft and motorcycles where the real nature of the artwork was the reflections in chrome and their inherent color.

Later my interest turned to work involving toys. Some old, some new, but mostly tin toys. Perhaps it’s a nostalgic thing, but their colorfulness and reflective qualities lend themselves well to creating still lifes. Combining them with old books and maps and other things I find interesting creates some interesting stories.

I was born in Aberdeen, Mississippi, but grew up in East Tennessee. My father always kept me supplied with art materials and I constantly drew page after page of whatever interested me. I can’t remember a time when I haven’t done it. I graduated from Middle Tennessee State University in the 70’s and somehow gained a passion for realist work which I continue to explore to this day.''

Scott Paulk










Scott Paulk’s body of work involves the exploration of subjects that deal with color, contrast, reflection and composition. The artist strives to express the beauty in what might otherwise go unnoticed. Paulk hopes the viewer will stop and look and observe the everyday things around him/her - the light on a wall, the interplay of light and shadow, the reflections on a shiny surface. Paulk wants the viewer to gaze upon these depicted moments in time and explore, wonder, think and see objects in their elemental forms.

Paulk’s works are small vignettes of life, a portion taken from a whole, that represent a deeper understanding of the common everyday things around us. Whether it is the brilliance of color in a child’s toy as in “Rocket Fuel” or the reflection in glass as in “Messenger in a Bottle” or “Big Fish” , Paulk wants to draw attention to the extraordinary in the ordinary.

Jim McVicker

Jim McVicker



McVicker was born in 1951 in Fontana, California. At age 21, McVicker was "jolted to life by looking at landscape paintings." Moved by the sensitivity he saw in ninteenth century french landscapes, his perception of the world was changed. At 24, McVicker committed to becoming a full-time artist and moved from Southern California to the North where he found a wealth of inspiration in the diversity and beauty of the region. A long-time resident of Humbolt County, his plein-air landscapes combine his love of the painting process and his deep appreciation of the environment.

McVicker's style has been described as invigorating and effortless. Through paint he pursues atmosphere, form, light, and solid drawing. In his work McVicker seeks to express the "elusive spiritual energy, the mystery of nature and life, [and] the unknown." He believes that without this sensitivity to the land, his work would be "merely marks on a surface."
