‘Hats Off for Camille’ shows Scott’s love of geometry and the reduction of everything, even playful portraits of friends, to formal patterns. It is interesting to compare Scott’s portrait of his contemporary and fellow painter, Camille Souter to that by Muiris Moynihan, also in the IMMA collection. Both artists respect the sitter’s reluctance to be represented more conventionally using Souter’s trademark beret as the signifier.
