This poster advertises an exhibition of recent paintings by Ian Scott in Auckland in 1978. At that stage Scott was exploring the lattice shape, with rectangular grids placed at a diagonal. He came to this style following a period in the 1960s when his work focused on depictions of young women, often dressed in mini-skirts and presented in bright colours in a suburban environment. After this abstract period he returned to figurative elements and used screen printing to comment on pictorial icons of New Zealand.
