Will Scott

William Scott (15 February 1913 – 28 December 1989) was a British artist from Northern Ireland, known for still-life and abstract painting. His apparently simple paintings of pots, pans and stylised nudes explore relationships between space, form and colour.

William Scott, the painter who made the everyday into a masterpiece, Guardian article

“behind the facade of pots and pans there is sometimes another image … a private one … sensed rather than seen”.

my love for the primitive and for the elemental

“The frying pan comprises, in essence, a circle and a line, and dozens of critics have discussed the intimate relations between his objects, and the sexual element to his work.”
