“An Everlasting Itch: A solo exhibition of sculpture and paintings by Scott Meskill,” opens Saturday, June 29, at ShockBoxx gallery, located at 636 Cypress Ave. in Hermosa Beach.
Six years ago, Meskill open his first studio and workshop and began his work creating furniture and other art from reclaimed and salvaged materials.
“I’m consumed, in such a wonderful way, by the need to create and attach little parts of myself to each piece,” Meskill said. “From paintings to sculpture, I find it’s less about the materials used and more about the inspiration and desire that dictates the impact. This body of work represents my persistent path of discovery, regardless of barriers, and despite limitations.”
ShockBoxx co-founder Mike Collins said “this is the show we’ve been waiting to see for a long time.”
“Scott is an instrumental part of our aesthetic,” said Collins. “His work is recognizable across disciplines and always brings diversity of reaction. He's coming in hot with fresh work and it's going to be a barn burner."
ShockBoxx program artist, Chip Herwegh added about Meskill's work, "Scott is a real artist. He knows how to move emotion from his mind to yours. His work makes me uncomfortable."
“An Everlasting Itch” opening is from 7 to 10 p.m.
