Anthony Scott

"What makes Scotts work so distinctive is the incorporation of human characteristics within the animal form.”  - ArtUK 
Born in rural Fermanagh, Anthony Scott attended university in Belfast and completed an MA in Cardiff in 1993. Now living and working in Blacklion on the border, Scott is primarily known for his beautifully stylised bronze animals, traditional in form, but with a modern twist. His animals and figures draw upon Celtic mythology and literature, their expressions and stances imbued with human characteristics invoking heroism and passion. They are each open to interpretation taking on the role of animal, divine, spirit, male, female, depending on which story one might choose to recount.

Scott has been a regular annual participant at the Royal Hibernian Academy in Dublin and has exhibited extensively in Ireland, the UK, and at numerous international art fairs. In May 2011, HM Queen Elizabeth II unveiled a new sculpture entitled 'See the Stars' by Scott at the Irish National Stud in Kildare. His work is also included in the public collections of the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, the Barbican Centre in London, the Crafts Council of Ireland, the US Ambassador's Residence in the Phoenix Park, Dublin, Kelly's Hotel Rosslare, and in numerous important private collections.
