Senior Exhibition 2004 Scott Heydrick
      My art is straightforward and direct. There is no iconography and there are no loaded images and no contextual problems to be solved. I don’t try to draw attention through complex ideas or metaphors. I deal mainly with traditional, observation-based, figural subject matter. Process, mark making, and media each contribute greatly to the content of my work.
      The core process behind all of my work is drawing. Without drawing, I would be unable to produce the prints and sculptures that make up my body of work. Figure drawing allows me to gain a better understanding of the human form, which helps me to create a more accurate representation in my prints and three-dimensional work. In essence, charcoal, graphite, printing matrices, clay, and other various media that I choose to work with are all a means to the same end: an accurate representation of my subject matter. Being involved in so many processes at the same time allows me to have a large variety of marks to create different illusions. These marks vary from process to process. Therefore, prints are distinctly prints because their marks cannot be emulated in a drawing or sculpture, and vice versa. A great variety of marks not only keeps me interested in creating work, but also makes the work more interesting for the viewer.
      Currently, I am working on a body of work that is very concise and deals with the same subject matter. Each print, drawing, and sculpture is similar in content, yet differs in process. Although I work in a variety of media, the goal of my work remains the same.
