Sean Scully is active/lives in New York / Ireland. Sean Scully is known for geometric abstraction-stripes.
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
His early works from the 1970s were more structured
than his later works that explored a new instability between the shapes
in the canvases. Scully's painting style has been compared to
that of Frank Stella, Jasper Johns and Brice Marden, but Scullys
surfaces seem more natural, with visible brushwork and natural hues.
