A hero of mine Cork artist Patrick Scott died aged 93. May he rest in peace.

The artist who was an amazing talent and produced a wealth of amazing pieces throughout his life was a shining beacon for displaying Irish artistic talent and his work was set to be honoured a day after his death with a huge and deserved retrospective on his life is set to take place at the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Carlow. With the blessing of his husband Eric Pearse and the rest of his family, the ‘Patrick Scott: Image Space Light’ took place with IMMA presenting the first part of the retrospective up to 1970 and VISUAL Centre for Contemporary Art bringing it up to now.

IMMA said of his passing: “Patrick Scott has been a defining figure of Irish art for over 70 years and the retrospective exhibition due to open tomorrow is testament to his extraordinary career, life and achievements as an artist. He will be sorely missed by the arts community and IMMA is honoured to pay tribute to one of Ireland’s most important artists with this major exhibition on which Patrick Scott worked closely with the curator Christina Kennedy, Head of Collections, IMMA.”

My condolences are with his husband Eric and all his other loved ones at this sad time.
