Kolbo Exhibition Proposal
Kolbo Exhibition ProposalScott KolboSolo Exhibition ProposalThis proposal is intended to introduce my work and provide information about the prints, drawings and video projections that I have available for exhibition. I am reaching out to curators and galleries in an effort to make new contacts and provide information about potential exhibition opportunities I am submitting for your consideration.My current work focuses on creating humorous vignettes out of situations in which fragments of reality mix with exaggerated environments and grotesque characters. Much like a writer or filmmaker I have built up a set of reoccurring characters and environments that allow me to investigate some of the social, political, and ethical issues that confront private individuals and communities in contemporary society. For example “Heavy Man” is a sad-sack middle class man who mysteriously becomes spontaneously heavy when he interacts with some of the more troubling aspects of our culture. He breaks office chairs, falls through floors, and wanders around lost in a haze of doubt. Other characters allow me to explore issues related to harsh political rhetoric (the Escalation Project), ideological extremism (Jeremiah), homelessness and poverty (Inga), and how the human environment impacts the people who live in it - particularly children who left to their own devices in challenging urban environments (Alley Kids).My recent studio practice is focused on creating digitally manipulated animations that are projected over static wall drawings. I am attracted to the tension that is created when fuzzy and “cheap” digital elements interact with sharp and beautiful hand drawn marks. The digital elements in my prints, drawings, and hybrid video projections are constantly flickering and morphing, but in an indistinct and imprecise way that comments on our current predicament living in a world dominated by glowing screens. I document these works through still photographs and video clips, but the pieces are extremely difficult to capture fully through digital/mechanical means. My ultimate goal is to create art objects that have to be seen in person to be authentically experienced. I have exhibited my work widely throughout the western United States, with a number national/international of exhibits and residencies included in my exhibition record. Most recently I have worked with the Curators of the Gallery 4Culture in Seattle Washington, the Oklahoma State University Museum of Art, and the Sheehan Gallery of Art at Whitman College. The works I have presented in these venues include traditional prints and drawings, as well as large-scale video projections and stand alone video monitor pieces. Many of the works presented in this proposal are available for solo or group exhibition opportunities, and I would be more than happy to discuss exhibiting pre-existing pieces or working on a new body of work that fits your curatorial program. Potential pieces for display:•    Large scale projections (or displayed on video monitors) from the “Alley Kids,” “Heavy Man,” and/or “Domestic Futility” series. •    Traditional framed Drawings and Prints.•    Artist Books and Comics. Potential activities:•    The creation of temporary wall drawings/murals while I am in residence. •    Collaborative drawing workshops with students or other community members - something I have done at Oklahoma State University and the Yuma Symposium). •    Lectures, class visits, or demonstrations. Budget:•    The budget for this proposal is flexible depending on the size of the venue and the desired scope of activities. •    Shipping costs would need to be covered by exhibition venue. The works are easy to ship, with lightweight materials and digital files for projection, etc. •     Installation and insurance costs would need to be covered by exhibition venue.•    Travel expenses outside the pacific northwest would need to be covered by the exhibition venue. •    If the large-scale projected pieces are selected I will need to be present for the installation of the exhibition – the alignment of the static drawing on the wall and the projected video can be tricky. Thank you for your attention to this proposal. If you have any questions, would like to dialogue about the work/arrange a studio visit, or negotiate budgetary issues please do not hesitate to contact me. Best regards,  Scott KolboAssociate Professor of ArtSeattle Pacific Universityscott.kolbo (at) gmail.com

Biography
BiographyScott Kolbo was born in Washington State in the early seventies and grew up the Northwestern United States. As a kid he spent countless hours creating comics, and drawing continues to play a dominant role in all his work. He became interested in the tradition of satire by looking through art books in the library and realizing that he was most attracted to prints with funny looking people in them. He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting and Printmaking from Boise State University in 1996 and a Master of Fine Arts degree in Printmaking from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2000. Scott lived in Spokane Washington for twelve years while working as a Professor at Whitworth University, and in 2012 he took a faculty position at Seattle Pacific University. He teaches a variety of courses including; Printmaking, Drawing, Design, New Media, and Contemporary Art History. His interests revolve around the study of culture, aesthetics, literature, film, and contemporary art. In his studio art work he is interested in the incorporation of new technologies into traditional art making strategies and mixing together elements from high and low culture. Scott exhibits his work locally, nationally, and in web-based formats.
