“Scott Zuckerman’s paintings recall those of the masters of natural impressionism, Bruno Liljefors, Carl Rungius, George Brown, and others. In a Zuckerman, the rhythms of nature, of colors, forms, and their interrelationships are conveyed musically, as harmonies and dissonances, absolutes and randomness.”

– James D. Balestrieri, J.N Bartfield Gallery, New York City

“Scott Zuckerman has emerged as one of America’s preeminent wildlife and sporting artists. Eschewing the current interest in ultra-realism that marks the genre, Scott’s work hearkens back to the masters. He is, in his own words “fascinated by the mystic rhythms of the woods” and driven by the need to capture in paint the essential rightness of wild creatures in their native habitats."

What the resume doesn’t really say is that my work is a diary of my life. It relies entirely on my personal observation and experience from time spent in the open. I go fishing every evening. For over 30 years I have heated my house with the wood I have cut, split and racked myself. I have learned from training my own bird dog to hunt, maintaining a productive vegetable garden, raising chickens for several years and tying flies with their feathers. I build model boats, and restore old canoes. I have raised two beautiful daughters and have been with their mother since my school days. These aspects of my life have brought me closer to the world that I depict in my art and have been the real experience that informs my work.
