This year is the centenary of Patrick Scott (1921-2014), one of Ireland's most celebrated and individual abstract artists.
Scott, who was born in Kilbrittain, County Cork on 24 January 1921, had his first exhibition when he was aged just 23 and, early on, was associated with the White Stag Group and the Irish Exhibition of Living Art (IELA). His paintings from this period embraced a naïve style but, having spent fifteen years working as an architect, his later compositions often incorporated geometry and impeccable design.
In presenting five works from the collection, this exhibition does not attempt a complete retrospective of Scott's oeuvre but rather offers meditations from five different decades of his long career.
