Scott Everingham’s paintings exist between abstraction and storytelling. Fictional narratives inform the structure of his works that ultimately develop into immersive abstract spaces. His paintings record a thoughtful process involving the manipulation of color, gesture and the physicality of paint. Revealing fragments of architectural and natural elements, Everingham draws viewers into surreal environments that explore illusory human habitations.
Three-time finalist in the prestigious RBC Canadian Painting Competition (2009, 2010, 2013), Everingham holds a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and an MFA from the University of Waterloo. His work has been exhibited throughout Canada and internationally in the United States, Denmark, England, and the Netherlands. He is represented in numerous public, private, and corporate collections. In addition to his painting practice, Everingham is a painting instructor at the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto, ON, where he currently lives and works.
