Scott Walker is a New York City based fine artist and a recent graduate from Parsons the New School for Design with a BFA in Fine Art. His work combines his interests in craft, care, gender, and sexuality. His work utilizes traditional fiber craft techniques, most often embroidery, quilting, and macrame. Fiber crafts carry with them a multiplicity of associations, meanings and histories, which Scott considers in his practice. Fiber crafts reference familial histories and traditions, as well as the domestic spaces in which crafted works are created and displayed. Scott grew up with a mom who embroidered and a grandma who knitted, along with other female family members working in fiber crafts. Scott's craft work imitates these labors of love.
Scott is interested in the gendered associations of fiber arts and crafts. Soft materials are often set in contrast to violent imagery. Sequins and embellishments are frequently utilized for their garish and flamboyant qualities, elevating the feminine and camp sensibility of the works.
