Bio

Sloat Shaw lives and works in Boston. Her work is informed by her trips to such diverse places as Tibet, the Indian Himalayas, and her artist residency in Vietnam. These journeys leave imprints in her paintings that depict the constantly changing landscape of the planet.

Her 2017 collaboration with neuroscientists, “Tasting Paint: Expanding Creativity” is
based on the idea that viewers have a creative role to play along with artists in an
exhibition. In the installation, the viewer encounters 6 sensory stations that amplify
touch, sight, sound, smell, taste, and energy. By stimulating the senses, the sensation
of creativity is heightened within the body. Scientific validation of creative changes in the body helps to anchor the experience.

Ms. Shaw received the Grumbacher Paint Prize from Diane Waldman, then Deputy
Director of the Guggenheim, the Vasari Paint Prize, the Museum School Print Prize.

Her work has been purchased for over 200 collections, including the Fogg Museum at Harvard University, Art Complex Museum of Duxbury, MA; Worcester Art Museum, MA; Boston Public Library, Printmaking Collection, MA. and in galleries and public spaces throughout Boston, MA, where she currently lives and works.
