The dramatic tensions of some place: Mary Scott

Tasmania-based Mary Scott's art ranges across media from traditional to cutting edge. Sometimes she meticulously paints oil on linen from digitally devised imagery, at other times she uses multiple inkjet prints as the final work. Focusing on Scott's 2007 exhibition Some Place at Criterion Gallery in Hobart, Mary Knights describes her hallucinogenic and unheimlich works as depicting 'with detachment and clarity the spectrum of human fragility.'
