Ian Scott has been painting for over 30 years and will be well-known to most followers of New Zealand contemporary art. Less well known is the range of his inventiveness. He began as a scene painter, was one of the few New Zealand artists to work in the Pop Art style in the 1960s, became reknowned for his geometric abstracts in the 1970s and has been exploring the possibilities of Post-Modernism for the past ten years. Beginning with Scott's early traditional landscapes, Warwick Brown's jargon-free text takes the reader through the three main phases of the artist's career and shows how the diverse work of Scott's prolific output can be linked together.
