Micro vs. Macro Do we live in a big, big world or a microcosmos where everyone and everything is connected in increasingly facile ways? Inspired by topographic maps, microscopic imagery, archeological excavations, Aboriginal art, and rhythms and patterns in nature, Idleman explores themes of connectivity and energy with the works on canvas and paper seen here. Scott Idleman is a San Francisco based fine artist and award-winning graphic designer. He graduated from Kansas City Art Institute in 1986 with a degree in graphic design and minors in fibers, painting and photography.
