On the celebratory, exploratory materiality of Scully's abstract formalism. The oeuvre of New York-based Irish painter Sean Scully constitutes a continuous exploration of bands and swathes of color, captivating the viewer through with hazily defined edges and brushstrokes that exalt the materiality of paint and pigment. Material World provides insight into the artist's methods, which have evolved through a sustained engagement with the art historical tradition of formalism.
