Artist Hugh-Scott Douglas in his studio
Scott-Douglas was born in Cambridge, England (1988) and makes repetitive prints on textiles using computer-generated algorithms. His next solo show is entitled "Hard Rain,” presented by Gallery Baton in Seoul, May 17-June 19.
Breakthroughs with Software
For the last five years I have been working to test the limits of photoshop and an OCÉ printer. Its applications are traditionally more commercially oriented, but we have been using it to make prints that defy what people expect or imagine is possible with an Inkjet printer.
On Dressing for Work
I like Margiela, Prada, Carol Christian Poell, and Alyx. I’m looking for something that acknowledges normalcy, and repositions it. T-shirts, black khakis, boots and a leather jacket: that’s kind of what I wear everyday. I just got some hiking boots for the first time.
I think self-expression presents itself more readily through the way we are, rather than the way we dress. Fewer decisions go into deportment. So really, that’s a more honest way to read someone.
On Fashion and Art
Although both the art and fashion I am interested in end up trafficking in many of the same things–appropriation, material ingenuity, class issues–ultimately they exist to satisfy very different social functions.
