Art Dept. | Visiting Artist Colloquium: Scott Espeseth
November 16, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Scott Espeseth is a nationally exhibiting artist working in Madison, Wisconsin. He earned an MFA in printmaking from the University of Wisconsin-Madison where he worked with storied print artists such as Frances Myers and Warrington Colescott. His work has since evolved to focus mainly on drawing, usually with commonplace media such as graphite pencils and ballpoint pen. His drawings have been described as “clairvoyant,” often depicting familiar spaces charged with a sense of dark presence, or other instances where planes of existence clash: the future sending messages to the past, memory intruding upon the present, or the subconscious bleeding into consciousness. Espeseth has been on the faculty of Beloit College since 2002 teaching all levels of drawing and printmaking.
