In 2004, when Tom Schulz was hosting his first art show with Scott Avett at his Empathinc. Gallery, he published an essay describing the transitory nature of Scott's work. We have excerpted and shared that essay here.
There is restlessness here. Not content to follow what has become the traditional path for painters (akin to the modern freeway – focus on the way to the exclusion of all exits), he takes side roads. And while this is not required knowledge for a proper reading of his paintings, it is necessary to a more complete understanding of his art.
