Scott August, a British Columbia native, makes art that investigates the relationship between man and nature. With a BFA in photography and printmaking from the University of British Columbia Okanagan, his work has been exhibited everywhere from Chicago to Montreal. August’s work consists predominately of photos, toys, paintings, taxidermy, and other unusual found objects. At first glance, much of his output could be mistaken as digital trickery, but he remains faithful to traditional hands-on montage. His life changed after a near 20-year pursuit to obtain a large roadside turkey sculpture with french fries sticking out of it, an attraction that originally advertised a junk shop. This turkey can now be seen in his most recent show “Interior…Provincial…Exhibition!!!” a collection of large-scale prints and sculptures that he has produced over the last 11 years.
