Tony Scott, Australian-born, has lived in Beijing since 2005, relocating to Hong Kong in 2014, to Melbourne in 2017, and now to Central Victoria.

“Looking for a Mountain is preoccupied with the concepts and aesthetics of body and time – the detritus of a rapidly changing society, the loss and reconfiguring of knowledge and the disintegration of our own bodies” (Tony Scott).
Scott’s practice appropriates found and readymade objects, in installation or through re-interpretation in 2d form (photography, painting & printmaking). A particular focus is the cultural association that images have and their capacity to elicit within the viewer memory, nostalgia or a shared history of a past experience.
Artpuff is proud to host this beautiful show.
