In the tradition of the great Pop and contemporary artists, Scoggins redefines the ordinary and familiar, composes a new vision, and, in the process, creates for the viewer an icon for the 21st century. As simple as it is sophisticated, his work is accessible, edgy, provocative and….witty, in an often sinister, way. Michael Scoggins takes on the world like a kid in the schoolyard of life.
Scoggins' bigger than life works, combine elements which pull on our collective memories and heartstrings. The works are emotionally charged - they make us laugh, they fill us with feelings of nostalgia or melancholy, while some make us angry and frustrated.
