This carborundum embossed print with gold leaf by Irish artist Patrick Scott explores the possibilities of embossing to create the same subtle qualities achieved in his paintings by applying acrylic and tempera to unprimed canvas
Born in Kilbrittan, Co Cork, in 1921, Patrick Scott has exhibited extensively both in Ireland and internationally. Patrick Scott worked 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 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. Scott came to the medium of print relatively late in his career. Drawing on motifs from his paintings, the prints are a continuation of the artist’s interests and themes explored throughout his career, all created with an undeniable meditative quality. In July 2007, Scott, who was a founding member of Aosdána, was conferred with the title of Saoi, the highest honour that can be bestowed upon an Irish artist
