Adrian Scragg

I am a painter, photographer, filmmaker and committed art educator. I believe passionately in the human need for creative experiences, and the contribution art makes to individuals and communities. My current focus is painting red abstractions in oil on canvas, exploring territories of the imagination that I call ‘Red Lake’. Stripped of a tangible or easily discerned object, the abstract painting becomes itself an object for contemplation. In essence, the abstract painter seeks a language to explore the ineffable: a difficult, faltering language to speak of that which cannot be measured or described. For several years I have produced film projections for the internationally recognised bands Buffseeds and IKO.
