The seventh featured artist in our current exhibition – London Bridge OPEN 2 Boundaries – is Cameron Scott who has two pieces within the exhibit.

London Bridge Hotel is a former telephone exchange built in 1916 which is now surrounded by the equally stunning and evolving architecture of London Bridge. To reflect this contrast of historical and modern existing side-by-side, London Bridge Hotel’s General Manager, Julio Marques, has curated an exhibition which includes 20 different approaches to architecture using a myriad of methods including wood carving, oil paint on concrete, illustration, London’s pubs re-imagined, screen printing and painting on silk.  The theme of the exhibit coincided with The London Festival of Architecture this summer.

He says:

“My relief carvings are stories about my life – the people, places and memories that influence me and mean so much to me. The “Aberdeen/Florence” carving is about my time as a student in Aberdeen and escaping to work in the fashion houses of Italy. “Left” is about a childhood memory of a row between my mother and father and how I, as a young boy, imagined its outcome.

“I often include, to me, iconic buildings such as Kintore Town Hall (which I lived opposite for most of my childhood), Palazzo Vecchio bell tower in Florence and its northern near twin Bradford Town Hall clock tower and the black and white checkerboard marble floor of Aberdeen Art Gallery.

“I have exhibited widely in galleries such as Saatchi Gallery, London; Centrespace, Bristol; Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution; Portico Gallery, Manchester; Weston Park, Shropshire; Cartwright Gallery, Bradford; Tricycle Theatre, London, Salford Art Gallery; Bury Art Gallery; Ikon Gallery, Birmingham”
