Patrick Scott 'Berkeley', 1967, V'soske tapestry
Location: The Berkeley Library entrance hall, Trinity College Dublin
This tapestry was commissioned from the artist by the architects Ahrends Burton Koralek. It is one of three large-scale works by Patrick Scott that have been integrated into an architectural context at Trinity College to create a stimulating environment for research, teaching and learning. At the O'Reilly Institute a beautiful tapestry entitled 'Lotus Pond' is located on the second floor, visible from the main entrance atrium. The third work, 'Kite!', 622 x 622 cm, is a cross between a painting and a textile and normally hangs in the Luce Hall upper. The work was on display from the 19th November until the 19th December 2010 in the Atrium of the Royal Hibernian Academy at 15 Ely Place, just off St. Stephen's Green in Dublin for the duration of the exhibition 'George Dawson: An Unbiased Eye. Modern and contemporary art from Trinity College.'
