This carborundum embossed print with gold leaf was made by Patrick Scott in collaboration with Stoney Road Press. He began to work with Stoney Road Press in the early 2000s, and as his ambitions within the medium grew, he built up a vocabulary capable of articulating the subtleties of the prints he was developing. Drawing on motifs from his paintings, Scott’s print works with Stoney Road Press were a continuation of the interests and themes he explored throughout his career. The gold leaf was applied by hand to each print, allowing for the gold to function, as in his paintings, not just as a colour but as a reflector of light.

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
