Scott E Teplin
"Drawing enhances my ability to see inside of things, test how far they can bend, take them apart, put them back together and come to a better understanding of how they work. The imagery I work with harkens back to my youth when I first discovered the things that I love, and continue to obsess over today. My intention is to explore the same engrossing emotions that started to bubble up inside of me then, and I hope to stoke similar feelings in others who view my work."
