Sean Scully is widely regarded as the master of post-minimalist abstraction.

Revolutionising abstract painting with his grid systems of intersecting bands and lines, Scully's work uses the shapes and forms of concrete geometry, infused with a lyrical emotion.

In this exhibition, Scully revisits his early works which reveal the origin of his continued fascination with stripes and the spaces in between.

Scully was a prize winner in the John Moores Painting Prize in 1972 and again in 1974. The opening of the exhibition coincides with the opening of the John Moores Painting Prize 2018 and Liverpool Biennial 2018.
