    Reader comments on Scott Prior

    Subject: Re: Various reactions
    Date: Dec 25, 2010
    Sender: TrinaPrevious

    I, too, had a strong reaction to "Nanny and Rose" and have had a copy of it with me for a very long time, probably about 20 years. I want to be on that porch with them...it draws me in...but until now I never did any further exploration of Scott Prior's work. I find his landscapes haunting, his still life work by turns technically skillful and playful, and his people disturbingly intimate...like I took a wrong turn and ended up in their bedroom!

    Response to this comment:
    Various reactions

    I had a visceral reaction to "Nanny and Rose" when I first saw it over 20 years ago and have kept a copy of the print on my walls wherever I've lived ever since. I loved the intimacy of Prior's paintings of that era.
    I find his current work arresting, if not disturbing. There's something about his technique, especially in the landscapes, that draws me deeply into and beyond what initially appears to be a snapshot. It feels more like perception than reality, but strangely more real. And mysteriously, very uncomfortable.
