One of the most important abstract painters living today, Sean Scully (Irish, b. 1945) shrouds sensitivity in brutality. The visual language of the two-time Turner prize-nominated artist is etymologically linked to Abstract Expressionism, and communicates wide-ranging atmospheres through stripes and floating blocks of color. Scully’s architectural photography shares the same concerns for color and inset forms as his paintings, locating beauty in mundane and decaying structures. Scully’s works appear in numerous public collections including Tate Gallery, London, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
