About Scott

Scott serves as Associate Professor and Area Coordinator of Painting and Drawing at East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina. His artworks have been exhibited and reproduced internationally. Publications featuring his artwork include The Oxford American, The New York Times, and the Cleveland Plains Dealer.

In the often harrowing, dreamlike world that Eagle conjures in his art, humans are perpetually at the mercy of forces beyond their control. They’re beheaded, attacked by sharks, menaced by tornadoes, sent tumbling through space and otherwise rendered powerless, while mysterious events unfold around them.

"Mr. Eagle's work is as dark as it is beautiful. I have had the privilege of studying under Professor Eagle and have personally seen his work. Viewing it up close gives you a completely new appreciation for it. His process of using many thin layers of paint is a delicate one. It's in complete contrast to the subject matter that is often very frightening. Elegant destruction."
