Visiting Whimsical Creatures!







‘ Scott Musgrove currently lives in Seattle, Washington. His influences include historical artists such as Hudson River School painters Frederic Church, Albert Bierstadt and Thomas Moran, as well as naturalist artists including John James Audubon. Musgrove’s unique style of figural work carries environmental themes, depicting whimsical, extinct (and fictitious) animal species. The artist’s paintings and sculptures have been exhibited in galleries and museums across the United States and Europe. His new book The Late Fauna of Early North America features lush, highly detailed landscapes and close encounters with many of his strange and beautiful creatures. Musgrove’s carved wooden sculptures, oil paintings, watercolors, ink drawings, and pencil renderings from the field are further complemented by fine details including antique frames and custom gold engraved nameplates to label and identify his specimens. ‘ (via Jonathan LeVine Gallery)
