Scoop Studios Contemporary Art is a new gallery venue in Charleston, South Carolina that focuses on providing exhibition opportunities for emerging Southeastern artists. Currently on view at Scoop is new works by Scott Debus in an exhibition simply titled UP. For the exhibition, Debus has created a new series of paintings that contain anthropomorphic forms which shift in between recognizable figures and pure abstraction. In the works, the artist often references super heros and religious icons, superimposing them with figures from his own life.
Debus is a co-creator of the bi-annual multi-disiplinary contemporary art event Kulture Klash and is the founder of the Bogard St. Gallery.
