A native of Chicago, Scott Froschauer has lived and worked in Los Angeles since 1994. He has a degree in theoretical linguistics from Syracuse University and his background includes studies in art, engineering, and business with extensive experience in fabrication, design, education, and government.
Scott’s work is first and foremost an exploration in communication. Incorporating playfulness with concepts of connection and empathy, he surprises his audience with new perspectives and unexpected juxtapositions of ideas, materials, and symbols. In a culture of alienation, Scott creates work that exposes and counteracts contemporary tides of judgment and the compulsions used to avoid uncomfortable thoughts and feelings. He is compelled to push boundaries while exploring experiential and alternative narratives.
Scott’s extensive exhibition history spans two decades, encompassing many forms including experimental printmaking, street art and large scale public sculptures. His early ventures into public art include large scale interactive installations at Burning Man in the Nevada desert. His gunpowder prints and silvered glass prints have been exhibited in multiple venues across California. Scott’s “The Word on The Street” series of re-contextualized street signs have been installed in public, private, and municipal spaces throughout the country. It has been seen on display at various galleries and museums including the Renwick Gallery of The Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC.
