Sean Scully

Early Prints

11 February – 30 May, 2020

Galerie Klüser & Galerie Klüser 2

In the exhibition ‘Early Prints’, we are focusing on the graphic work in the oeuvre of Sean Scully (*1945 in Dublin) – a process to which the artist has turned increasingly since the 1980s. The works bear witness to Scully’s constant exploration of new expressive possibilities using various materials and techniques and their specific characteristics.

Sean Scully

About the artist

Sean Scully’s work bases on an artistic approach to vertical and horizontal colour stripes and rectangles. By using different techniques and materials Scully deals creatively with the minimalist motifs. While he used tape in his early works in order to create accurate edges, he breaks loose of this method during the 80s. At this time he wittingly decided to paint the outlines manually so that they appear softer and vivid. Brushwork and coating are clearly visible and a dark earthy range of colour characterises most of his paintings. Besides, Scully also creates etchings, lithographs, pastels and watercolours.
