    Artist Stories / Patrick Scott Read more


    Born in Kilbrittan, Co Cork, in 1921, Patrick Scott has exhibited extensively both in Ireland and internationally. Patrick Scott works in a disciplined, simple yet individualistic manner. He studied architecture at University College Dublin and after graduation in 1945 worked with the architect Michael Scott. His training in architecture is reflected in his strict use of formal yet distinctive symbols. He has devoted himself fully to painting since 1960. Scott travelled extensively in China and Japan, and his interest in oriental art is evident in his work, expressed by the simplicity of geometric forms, the minimal use of colour, and a characteristic use of line. In July 2007, Scott, who is a founding member of Aosdána, was conferred with the title of Saoi, the highest honour that can be bestowed upon an Irish artist.
