Patrick Scott is, without a doubt, one of Ireland's most significant exponents of pure abstraction art and now, as he reaches his 87th year, Liberties Press celebrates his career with this stunning retrospective of his life's work.
Patrick is most famous for his exquisitely simple abstracts in gold and white on unprimed canvas, and the minimal yet beautiful materials which he uses. These paintings contain a zen-like meditative quality which has attracted international acclaim. In contrast to these quiet paintings are his tapestries which revel in all the colors of the rainbow, and which also feature in the book alongside the paintings, furniture and sculpture.Aidan Dunne - art critic for the Irish Times - has previously written extensively on Scott's work, and this book gives him the opportunity to be involved with a project celebrating one of the High Kings of Irish Art. 'Patrick Scott is best known for his beautifully judged abstract paintings. In a way, his signature image could not be simpler: a disc of shimmering gold leaf applied to bare canvas. But this basic template, and myriad variations of it, have generated an abundance of extraordinarily rich visual statements, demanding our attention and leading us into an imaginative space of profound, meditative clarity'.
