From Wick to Mott Haven:

The Magic Realism of Ian Charles Scott


Ian Charles Scott, Damian and Joe, oil on canvas, 60"x48", 2001

Loaned by Scott R. Coleman

Curated by Sarah Sandman, From Wick To Mott Haven is Scott’s first solo exhibition in the Bronx. It features 26 paintings of which magical elements are a natural part of an otherwise mundane environment, bringing to life an extended cast of characters that stretch from Ian Charles Scott’s hometown of Wick in remote Northern Scotland to his Hostos Community College studio.

Scott explains that some of the people that appear in his paintings are from the Bronx and Scotland, among other places. “They are all people who fascinate me and help me to understand life as I try to understand them…I use paint as a way of understanding and coming to terms with the world around me and inside me,” states the artist.

Five Former Students of Ian Charles Scott


5/150 is a collective exhibition showcasing the artwork of five of Scott’s former students Lee Jacob Hilado, Vanessa Isabella, Ptah Miller Osaretin Ugiagbe, and Dennesa Usher — all of whom are now all professional artists.

“The students whose work I have selected to accompany my paintings are all true artists. Each has a unique mature vision and each has learned over the years how to incorporate being an artist into their practical lives,” says Scott. “They are shining examples of the best from Hostos Community College Alumni.”

This exhibition is made possible with funding from Hostos Community College Foundation with public funds from the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, NYS Council on the Arts, the Lambent Foundation Fund of Tides Foundation, Lily Auchincloss Foundation, Inc., Hostos Center for the Arts & Culture, Bronx Tourism Council, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. and the Bronx Delegation of the City Council.
