Zoe Scott is a Scottish artist working primarily in concrete. She endeavours to challenge the perceptions of concrete as a brutal, industrial material and to elevate it from the mundane. She creates collections of small scale works exploring environmental and political issues. Each sculpture is hand build over several weeks, allowing layers of concrete to dry before applying new layers or removing sections. These are juxtaposed with found objects and more tactile elements such as thread. A variety of surface finishes are explored to enhance and alter the concrete. The sculptures encourage interaction and conversation. Her latest work focuses on the humanity of climate change, our interactions with the landscape and individual responsibility to protect the world and its inhabitants.
