A prolific and internationally renowned painter, Sean Scully (b. 1945) has also been making sculpture on and off for the best part of fifty years. As this new exhibition at Waldfrieden highlights, he works simultaneously across several materials, including stone, steel, wood and glass, making large works that are placed both indoors and outdoors. Like his paintings, his sculptures are characterised by grids, lines, stripes and blocks, carefully composed and layered together. And like his paintings, his sculptures deal with minimalism’s primary structures while humanising their geometries with other more personal poetries and presences.
