Self-Portrait Paris, 1976
For Scott Boyd, creating a sculpture is like exploring a new language, developing its vocabulary and seeking out the abstractions of thought that can best bring expression into the possibility of communication.
The sculptor's work has been exhibited in New York, NY, Boston, MA; Portland, OR; New Haven, CT; various locations in VT; Garrison, NY; and Paris, France.
Previously in New York City for twenty years, Boyd now lives and works in Stowe, Vermont. He received his B.A. from Reed College and his M.F.A. in sculpture from the Yale University School of Art. He has also studied sculpture at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, France, and marble carving in Tinos, Greece, as well as, Pietrasanta, Italy. Sculptors who have inspired him include Constantin Brâncusi, Joel Shapiro, Barry Le Va, Winifred Lutz, Matthew Barney and Donald Judd.
Other pursuits include writing poetry, drumming and dancing Argentine tango.
