Sean Scully, b.1945

7/7/91 in Memory of Robin Walker1991

‘7.7.91 For Robin Walker’ is a drawing in pastel in keeping with the robust quality of Sean Scully’s larger canvases. In this work the artist has built up a velvety texture, where layers of chalky pigment are roughly applied with softened edges revealing the paper underneath. The tones of orange ochre, deep petrol blue, pinkish whites and charcoal create a soothing sense of order. Scully’s vertical stripes inset with boxes of horizontal stripes nestle comfortably without appearing static.

About the Artist

Sean Scully b.1945

Sean Scully is renowned worldwide for his adherence to the stripe in his expressionist painting. In the 1980s Scully loosened the precise grid-like style of his early works in favour of bold rough edged columns and panels of thickly applied paint.
