Artist's Statement

Craig Scoffone

I have chosen the human form, and in particular, that of the female nude, as the common thread throughout much of my fine-art work. My choice of techniques, of different lighting, film, and processes, and more recently, post production digital strategies, is constantly changing. As a work in progress, I feel it appropriate that I not only choose a common denominator as a theme throughout, but also one that interests me personally, and has, and I suppose always will have, a strong emotional bond with the viewer. The challenge to me is how do I make my figurative studies unique, but also, how do I compensate for, or effectively rival, the very eroticism of my subject matter. The end result should not just be that of titillation, but a statement of high art. A statement that I hope is, visually speaking, concise, and will be heard long after I'm gone.
