J. Amadeaus Scott: highway overpass

highway overpass

J. Amadeaus Scott (MFA 2010)

At its core, my work seeks to germinate relationships between narrative, identity, and landscape, through concentric circles of state, city, and home. I am the product of rural agricultural and industrial labor families, and I am deeply interested in the margins of both of these spaces - places where the threads of a community start to unravel and fray into something less defined and measurable, less separate and distinct.

This work is featured as part of Future Former: An Exhibition of Alumni Work. This exhibition honors the creative work and careers of all Stamps School alumni, creates an aspirational connection between generations of U-M artists and designers and current Stamps students, and inspires reflection during the university's Bicentennial year.
