Patrick Scott - A Retrospective

Gold Painting 21 c. 1975 Acrylic and gold leaf on canvas

7June–10 August 2002

Patrick Scott is, without doubt, one of Ireland's most significant exponents of pure abstraction art.

This retrospective exhibition at the Crawford Municipal Art Gallery, previously held at the Hugh Lane Municipal Art Gallery, Dublin, brings together works from Scott's extensive and prolific career.

Scott's formal training as an architect remains a reference in all his work from his early representational works, in the 1940's and 1950's, of still lifes and landscapes through to his seminal works from the late 1960's represented by the extensive Gold paintings series. The exhibition also reflects Scott's exploration of a diverse range of art forms including tapestries, screens and Tables for Meditation.

Born in Kilbrittan, Co. Cork in 1921, Patrick Scott exhibited in the first Irish Exhibition of Living Artists in 1941 and qualified as an architect in 1945. Working for leading Irish Architect Michael Scott for fifteen years Scott devoted himself fully to art in 1960. By which time he had already established a considerable reputation representing Ireland at the Guggenheim International both in 1958 and 1960 and the XXX Venice Biennale.

This exhibition is a celebration of Patrick Scott's national and international career and is accompanied by a colour illustrated catalogue with essays commissioned specifically for the exhibition.

The exhibition runs concurrently with Michael Warren: light, gravity and distance from Friday 7 June - Saturday 10 August.

Opening hours: Monday - Saturday 10am - 5pm (Admission Free). Full wheelchair access.
