About

Scott Fraser's "Katy Didn't" is an oil painting created in 2020 that depicts a glass bowl full of lemons, oranges, and grapes stuck with a pencil while a Spider decoration hangs ominously over the scene. Artist's Notes about "Katy Didn't": I have long admired the work of French-American Louise Bourgeois. Her huge bronze spider sculptures can be seen in museums around the world. Because of this, she is often referred to as “the spider woman”. There is a famous photo of her by Robert Mapplethorpe which inspired the face of the spider in my painting, Katy Didn’t. She is dangling by a thread, anticipating a Katydid snack. I myself have stood under one of her oversized bronze sculptures and felt a bit intimidated. Oddly enough, even though I am a still life painter, this is my first attempt at a bowl of fruit. It took some time to find just the right bowl. I like how this one offers a complimentary shape to the arcs and curves of the spider legs overhead. About the artist: Scott Fraser is a leading figure in twenty-first century realist painting, specializing in taking ordinary objects and composing them in extraordinary ways. Many adjectives have been used to describe his work: quirky, intense, humorous, thoughtful; but above all, there is a sense of the personal in his unique compositions. Fraser taps into a variety of influences, including art history, former teachers, friends and family. His work can be found in over 25 museum collections around the country including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Denver Art Museum, the Fine Arts Museums in San Francisco, and the Whitney Western Art Museum in the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, Cody WY.
