Lotte Scott

Lotte Scott’s artwork explores place, time and material. Since 2013 her practice has focused on the peat moors of Somerset, examining the indexical nature of peat as a living archive of land and people.

Working primarily with drawing and sculpture, Lotte is interested in processes of transformation in the waterlogged landscape of the moors. This is a place that distills and suspends ancient matter, where a wealth of prehistoric archaeology has been unearthed by centuries of destructive peat cutting. Her work offers up the materials of the moors for contemplation, considering themes of deep time, preservation, extraction and transience.

Lotte is a b-side & Somerset Art Works Platform Bursary Artist 2020/21
