Scott Everingham performs as architect and painter, intuitively dismantling and rebuilding structures and environments using the language of paint. Fictional yet familiar space and light are tools to represent illusory depth that is rooted in formal abstraction.
Everingham holds a BFA from the Nova Scotia School of Art and Design and an MFA from the University of Waterloo. He is a 3-time RBC Canadian Painting Competition Finalist with exhibitions at The Power Plant (Toronto), the National Gallery of Canada (Ottawa) and the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Jon Imber Painting Award from the Vermont Studio Centre, Canada Council, Ontario Arts Council and the Toronto Arts Council. His work is included in many private and corporate collections, such as TD Bank Collection, RBC Corporate Collection, Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Welch LLP, Cadillac Fairview, and the Tom Thompson Art Gallery. He exhibits internationally with recent shows at the Torrance Art Museum (Los Angeles), Field Projects (New York) and Beers London (UK). Everingham is represented by General Hardware Contemporary in Toronto.
