Sean Scully is known for his paintings of bold, opposing stripes, grids and checkerboard patterns.  His palette is earthy and rich in browns, blacks and ochres.  The inspiration for the striped motif he uses was from a trip he took to Morocco in 1970.  For him, the striped Moroccan fabrics dyed in deep red and indigo were stunning visually.

His early works from the 1970s were more structured than his later works that explored a new instability between the shapes in (showing 500 of 1371 characters).
