Scarlett describes herself as an Augmentist, painting impressionistically but using augmented reality to reveal the deeply personal process beneath each painting. Using augmented reality app Blippar, Scarlett is able to take the painting process far beyond the canvas, stripping away the layers of her paintings to reveal the creative journey beneath; the thought process, the layers of paint and the raw emotion and inspiration.
“Creation goes beyond the canvas. Like a chemical reaction, creation fills its environment. It has an aftermath. I suppose that is what I am really interested in, what the explosion, meeting, gathering of materials leaves behind. What we leave behind.”
