Patrick Scott HRHA

Born in Kilbrittain, Co. Cork, Patrick Scott (1921-2014) was a highly recognised Irish artist, best known for his abstract works and gold paintings. He trained and worked as an architect for a number of years at a practice run by Michael Scott and didn’t become a full time artist until 1960. After representing Ireland at the Venice Biennale and winning the National Prize at the Guggenheim International Award, his career in art took off.  Scott’s style involved the use of gold leaf and tempera paint, employing abstract themes and geometrical forms.
A Saoi of Aosdána, he worked on the design of the central bus station in Dublin, Busáras, and the sets for The Playboy of the Western World and The Plough, along with the catalogue cover and exhibition motifs of three Roscs. Aside from painting, the artist experimented with tapestry design, folding screens, table and printmaking.
He exhibited regularly at the Taylor Galleries in Dublin and retrospectives of his work were held at the Douglas Hyde Gallery and the Hugh Lane Gallery.
