An exhibition of paintings by the artist Sean Scully, known for his geometric patterns in muted colours that resonate with atmosphere and light.

Sean Scully, Pink Dark Triptych, Pallant House Gallery

The Dublin-born painter Sean Scully is known for making the most out of the modest stripe. He concocts mazes from vertical and horizontal bars of colour in a composite of dusty greys, greens and ochres, colours that reflect the hazy horizons of the cities he lived in and their surrounding countryside. This exhibition features a series of triptychs inspired by his Catholic background.

Don't miss

Pallant House recently acquired Scully’s abstract work, ‘Pink Dark Triptych’, 2011, a painting inspired by the landscape in Southern Germany. The grid format, and pink hues suggests Scully is moving away from his trademark urban palette to create works that echo the natural world.
