TateShots: William Scott

21 February 2013

Curator Chris Stephens presents the exhibition highlights, and tracks the fascinating development of Scott’s style. Throughout his career Scott explored themes of still-life, landscape and the female nude, while shifting between representation and abstraction. As Scott himself said: ‘I am an abstract artist in the sense that I abstract. I cannot be called non-figurative while I am still interested in the modern magic of space, primitive sex forms, the sensual and the erotic, disconcerting contours, the things of life.
