Patrick Scott, b.1921

Meditation Painting 282007

From the 1960s, Scott combined squares of gold leaf, white tempera and acrylic paint on raw linen canvas to create geometric images in infinite permutations. Following his journeys to the Far East during the 1980s, Scott’s later Gold paintings becam more explicitly concerned with an Eastern aesthetic. ‘Meditation Painting’, as its title suggests, encourages the viewer to contemplate the link between the physical and metaphysical world.

About the Artist

Patrick Scott 1921–2014

Patrick Scott is recognised as 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 (1982) and Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane (2002) and a seminal 2014 exhibition ‘Patrick Scott: Image Space Light' which brought together the most comprehensive representation of this remarkable artist’s 75 year long career. — View Artist »
