Stephen Scott Young
Island Games (Lucky Shot)

1999

$85,000

About

Island Games (Lucky Shot) depicts a pair of young Bahamian boys engaged in a game of marbles, one of the artist's signature themes. Scholar William Gerdts writes: In these works, Scott not only depicts young individuals engaging in a popular activity but shows their intensity and competitiveness while conveying their camaraderie. The pictures are not so much about "winners" and "losers" as about the boys' concentration on the game and the interest shown by onlookers....The sense of community evoked in the series suggests that playing marbles will be a continual source of pleasure and amusement, of contest and rivalry, and at the same time strengthen the bonds of friendship.* ____ * William H. Gerdts, Once Upon an Island: Stephen Scott Young in the Bahamas (New York: Adelson Galleries and University Press of New England, 2012), p. 134.
