Scott produced a number of landscapes following a visit to China in the mid 1980s. ‘Chinese Landscape’ is a stylized representation of unusual rock formations in the Guelin region, whose shapes Scott has presented in contour like lines of white tempera on raw canvas, as though viewed through a veil, above which the gold disc of the sun hovers.

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
