Let us tell you more about this edition

The multiplicity of abstract compositions that form Scully's works have indeed remarkably sensual and emotional qualities. The works achieve this emotional effect through a unique technique of applying first the direct brushwork on wet canvas, and second, through the hand-drawn, irregular contours of the individual stripes that allow the layers of paint beneath to shine through.

“I was always looking at the horizon line – at the way the blocks of the world hug…and brush up against each other, their weight, their air, their colour, and the soft uncertain space between them.”— Sean Scully

Characterized by broad lines of horizontal and vertical colors, the work emanates a sense of absorbing stillness and calm. Scully’s subtle color combination from black to different nuances of grey is emotionally charged, powerfully resonating with the viewer and illustrating the innate spirituality that characterized Scully's complete oeuvre.
