Born in Alaska but raised in the very contrasting landscapes of California, Scott sketched throughout his teens, incorporating portraiture, the latest fashion trends, the human body, and a sense of dynamic movement in his imagery. The fusion of the human form with fashion remains a key driver in Rohlfs’ work.
He explores our real-world existence right through to the virtual life, where the portrayal of femininity has evolved dramatically, taking the idealized womanhood of the gaming world and a more global visual parlance (drawn from sources as divers as news reportage, film noir and the graphic novel) as well as postmodern influences from multiple modes of being.
Scott is refreshingly open about his broad inspirations from many different sources, with artistic references drawn from contemporary art and culture as well as from the real world around him. Scott's distinctively assured brush stroke and his innate understanding of contemporary notions of beauty and style have seen him tipped to become one of the great artists of our time.
