In 1974, Scott created a series of six silk screen prints in editions of twenty-five for the retail shops of Kilkenny Design Workshops. Arcady 4 is one of the series. The shaded green geometric arcs of the print suggest flowing foliage and the natural world. The linen backgound adds to the earthiness of the work, despite its abstract form. During the 1970’s Scott also painted works that alluded to the elements as in his series of works titled, Pyre, Object and Fount.

Patrick Scott is considered one of the first exponents of pure abstraction in Irish art and a significant contributor to the development of modernist design in Ireland. He was elected a Saoi of Aosdána in 2007. Retrospectives of his work were held at the Douglas Hyde Gallery in 1982, and Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane in 2002 and 2014 when the exhibition ‘Patrick Scott: Image Space Light' brought together the most comprehensive representation of his 75 year long career.View Artist
