Sean Scully. Eleuthera

Sean Scully Eleuthera 7 June–8 September 2019 The Albertinais presenting the latest series of works by Sean Scully, one of today’s leading practitioners of abstraction. His compositions are mostly built of plain strips and bands whose balance derives solely from intuition and not from rational construction.

The new series, named after the island resort of Eleuthera in the Caribbean, stands out for its surprising figuration, which seems to represent Scully’s radical break with an artistic approach he has consistently pursued since the 1970s. But in fact Scully worked simultaneously and independently on both the figurative pictures of his eight-year-old son Oisín and his abstract geometric paintings. Products based on either one of these two forms of expression were created virtually side by side, in the same studio: on the one hand, the many variations of a picture composed of vertical and horizontal strips and beams, with which Scully experimentally explores the fragile relationship between load-bearing and resting elements, between states of floating and being supported, in all its formal and coloristic possibilities; and, on the other hand, Scully’s series Eleutheraas contemporary interpretation of a child’s portrait in the mode of concrete and figurative painting.
