The focus of Scott Cilmi's paintings has been to create a sense of energy and spirit through color, composition, line and shape. The energy could be loud and powerful or quiet and subtle. He is most interested in using juxtapositions of color and exploring how layers affect each other.
The new paintings continue and expand upon visual abstraction as an evolving language/ non-language in which the painter and the audience correspond and share ideas with each other regarding our shared consciousness and the inner-self.
