BIO, 2018

Scott Dickson is an image-maker and art and design educator. Through a method of work that hybridizes aspects of drawing, painting, collage, and printmaking Dickson investigates the passage of time and associated memories that occur in solitary engagements with the landscape. In order to further his research he seeks out spaces and locations that provide retreat from urban aspects of life. Such explorations include a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail and an Artist-In-Residence at the Iowa Lakeside Laboratory. Dickson’s work has been exhibited in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Kansas City, and Berlin, Germany. His images are published both online and in print, most recently in Age of Collage, Contemporary Collage in Modern Art, a publication by Berlin-based Gestalten. With a BFA from the University of Kansas (2007) and a MFA from Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 2009, Dickson currently serves as Assistant Professor in the Drawing program at Kendall College of Art and Design located in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
