Catherine Lee

Catherine Lee b.1950

American artist Catherine Lee first exhibited in New York at PS1 in 1980. A hybrid of painting, sculpture and installation, 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. Lee has exhibited internationally from the 1980s. Her work is included in the collections of SFMOMA; MoMA, New York; Tate, London, and the Carnegie Institute, Pittsburgh. — View Artist »

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. — View Artist »
