In 1960 Scott began using tempera on unprimed canvas, soaking, tilting and manipulating the plane of the support to achieve poured, dripped and pooling effects. His process was particularly inspired by the marshy landscape and glinting lakes of the midlands. ‘Autumnal Landscape’ palpably evokes the turning season, where green gives way to shades of gold and orange.

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
