Sean Scully ENG


For Sean Scully (*1945), painting not only expresses what one sees, but also specifically what one feels. His inimitable pictures thus rely solely on paint—applied with a strong, but above all abstract gesture. The Albertina is now presenting Sean Scully from a hitherto unfamiliar side: a series of figurative paintings of his son Oisín playing on the beach of Eleuthera, an island in the Bahamas. Extensive material from Scully’s private archive as well as in-depth essays by Werner Spies and Elisabeth Dutz elaborate on this newly obtained painterly freedom.
