Scott Ingram’s current solo show at Emily Amy Gallery, Cusp, continues his twelve-year long series of nail polish paintings. Ingram has used the medium to take the aesthetics of mid-century painters such as Ellsworth Kelly and Morris Louis into a humorous pop-cultural context that explores how painting can still be relevant.

Of the many stories invented by the partisans of Freud, Marx, and Darwin to explain the roots of human psychological, social, and biological behavior, it is astonishing how few of these narratives are even remotely convincing.

04/06/11 Why do young artists leave Atlanta?
Seven artists with roots in Atlanta discuss their reasons for relocating, their new independent creative paths, and why they all wish there was more to come home for.
I spent Saturday morning in crisis mode, frantically driving around Atlanta in search of a prescription for insulin. Not to be hyperbolic, but it was the worst thing that ever happened. Miserably, I trudged across the highway to the Westside, hardly expecting art to make me feel any better. To my surprise, the four recently [...]
