The Irish Museum of Modern Art and Carlow’s Visual Centre for Contemporary Art are currently paying joint homage to Patrick Scott, who passed away in February this year. We at Irish Arts Review would also like to remember this distinguished artist and Saoi of Aosdána who was the subject of a recent assessment by Brian Fallon in last summer’s issue. His work in tapestry was appraised by Peter Lamb in summer 2002 and prior to that, the art critic Dorothy Walker paid homage to the eloquent simplicity of his Gold paintings in summer 1986. ‘Image Space Light’ brings together the most comprehensive display of this remarkable artist’s 75-year-long career across the two venues. Scott had his first exhibition in 1941 with the White Stag Group, and the exhibition brings together more than 100 pieces that illustrate the breadth and longevity of his career as an architect, designer and artist. IMMA concentrates on early works, while VISUAL displays examples from the 1960s to the present. Important works from the 1960s include the ‘Device’ paintings that reference the nuclear weapons’ testing of that period. The Westbury Hotel in Dublin, The Doyle Collection has loaned Scott’s Flame Device (1963) which can be viewed alongside Large Solar Device (1964) from the collection of Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane.
