Catherine Lee

Catherine Lee b.1950

A hybrid of painting, sculpture and installation, Catherine Lee’s work juxtaposes the simplicity of repeated forms with a wide variety of materials. Fabricated in clay, concrete, fibreglass and metal, her work is frequently presented in groups.

Sean Scully

Sean Scully b.1945

Sean Scully was born in Dublin and raised in London. He moved to New York to undertake a graduate fellowship at Harvard in the early 1970s. Scully is now 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. Scully was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1989 and 1993. He has exhibited extensively in Europe and the US and is represented in major public collections worldwide.
