Sean Scully

Sean Scully is an Irish-born American painter, photographer and sculptor. Famous for colourful abstract paintings that evoke emotional landscapes, he combines a European sensibility with an American approach in moving compositions essentially consisting of stripes and squares. The rich materiality of the colour blocks that play with shapes and light and the friction of contrasting edges embody a profound meditation on painting itself – that Scully evokes in his numerous writings published in 2016 (‘Inner’, Hatje Cantz).
