About the Artist

Scott Listfield (b. 1976, Boston, MA) is known for his paintings featuring a lone exploratory astronaut lost in a landscape cluttered with pop culture icons, corporate logos, and tongue-in-cheek science fiction references. Scott studied art at Dartmouth College, for which his parents have finally forgiven him. After some time spent abroad, Scott returned to America where, a little bit before the year 2001, he began painting astronauts and, sometimes, dinosaurs.

Scott has been profiled in Wired Magazine, the Boston Globe, and on WBZ-TV Boston. His work has also appeared in New American Paintings and Surface Magazine. In 2010 he was named a Massachusetts Cultural Council Grant finalist, and was the official artist of 2011 Boston First Night. He has exhibited his work in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Miami, Boston, and many other nice places.

This is his second solo exhibit at Rotofugi Gallery.

About the Artist

Toronto, Canada-based painter and sculptor Chris Austin first exhbited with us as part of 2013's Northern Lights Canadian artist group exhibit and we instantly fell in love with his evocative, lively style and, well, bears. His works, often painted on reclaimed wooden surfaces and found objects, evoke both a love of nature and a striking range of emotion and expression.

We hosted Chris' first US solo exhibit in February 2016 and we're excited to have him back for this new exhibit. Chris will be in attendance at the opening so stop in and say hi!
