Pat Scott / Gold Painting 21

Crawford Art Gallery, housing both contemporary and tradional artworks at Emmet Place, Cork, Ireland.

Referred to as his Gold Paintings, these paintings use simple geometric forms in gold leaf and tempera paint. Many are created on large rectangular unprimed canvases. Scott is concerned with balancing the relationship between the forms and the space in which they are placed. He began using gold leaf from 1964. The technique for applying the thin sheets of gold leaf is complex and requires considerable dexterity and patience.
