Scott Hazard is a visual artist based in Raleigh, North Carolina. His works are a meditation on land and the cultural lenses through which we perceive and experience nature and our environment. Hazard received his landscape architecture education at California Polytechnic State University at San Luis Obispo and earned his MFA at the University of Florida.
Silent Geography is a site-specific installation consisting of Hazard’s torn paper constructed landscapes. The entire gallery floor is covered with paper structures punctuated with masses of text to transform the space into an immersive garden.
He has exhibited his work at venues including CAM (Contemporary Art Museum) Raleigh; SECCA (Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art) Winston-Salem, NC; Mixed Greens, New York, NY; CONTEXT, Miami, FL; Second Street Gallery, Charlottesville, VA; Flanders Gallery, Raleigh, NC; Adah Rose Gallery, Kensington, MD; Davidson College, Davidson, NC; Roanoke College, Salem, VA; Goucher College, Towson, MD; and Atlantic Center for the Arts, Atlantic Beach, FL.
His work has been featured in a number of magazines and online publications, including The Washington Post, Glamcult, WILD Magazine, Oxford American, Monster Children, BOOOOOOOM, Juxtapoz and Hi-Fructose.
He is the recipient of an Artist Fellowship from the North Carolina Arts Council and a Professional Development Grant from the United Arts Council.
