We are pleased to present this major retrospective exhibition of the work and career of Past President of the Royal Scottish Academy, Bill Scott (1935-2012).
Scott was a prominent and much respected Scottish sculptor who established and developed his practice in Edinburgh, whilst creating work for public spaces and exhibiting nationally and internationally.
Working predominantly in bronze and wood, his work explores our human experience, particularly how we inhabit, use and define space – experiences he saw influenced by changes in society, science and art. While his early work evidenced influences from Brâncuși to Giacometti, his work was in turn influential to the work and careers of many of his students and peers.
This exhibition is an opportunity to re-present Scott’s work for contemporary audiences and explore its key themes and influences. Importantly, it is also an opportunity to fully explore his role as an educator, mentor and influence on the many artists he taught and supported.
We would like to thank the Estate of Bill Scott, Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop and Bill Hare for the loan of works for this exhibition.
