We asked Scott Anderson to share the backstories of paintings from his current exhibition Biotech. Below are five videos—on five paintings—which offer a glimpse into Anderson’s most pressing interests, surprising techniques, and cultivation of “studio voodoo.”

…maybe paintings become animate—like Frankenstein’s monster, and technology can create of kind of cyborg out of the paintings.

Scale is really an important part of what a painting can do. My approach to it varies according to my mood and what kind of artist I’m trying to be at any one time.

The paintings want to become something else. They want to transform themselves into other things. But they are damned to remain paintings.

I’m always looking for things to get in my way, whether it be materials or processes, so I can’t entirely predict the outcome of a painting. I find that I learn a lot about the medium and even myself in the process.

Maybe there’s some kind of studio voodoo that happens by imposing this technological realm onto painting, and that in the process there’s a different kind of golem being created.
