Scott Eakin works with acrylic paint on wood panel surfaces. Layers of lines, bars and bands of brilliant color are stacked upon each other in a meticulous process to create the graphic, geometric impact of the paintings. At closer look one also finds countless miniature landscapes hidden within the lines. In his work Eakin investigates interactions between edges and intersections, planning and happenstance, intellect and intuition.
