Nick Scrimenti is a painter based in Dayton who recently relocated from Cincinnati. He received his MFA in painting from the University of Cincinnati in 2012 and his BFA in painting and printmaking from Miami University in 2009. He has worked with the organization ArtWorks in Cincinnati on several of their community projects including three large scale murals. His most recent mural works are on the Kroger corporate headquarter building downtown and adjacent to Great American Ballpark.
My current work is based on my experience of being employed by a hoarder in the winter, spring and summer of 2010 to help develop a strategy to clean and organize their property. To the owner, the endless piles of physical objects either contained a memory or possessed the potential to manifest itself into something new. The objects were in a sense a lifelong collage. This experience, the concept of an organized mess, and how it correlates to my process of painting are what my current work explores.
