Sean Scully, Eleuthera
CAC Málaga, Spain
15 October 2019 - 19 January 2020
The Center for Contemporary Art of Malaga presents the latest Eleuthera series by Irish artist Sean Scully. Exhibition curated by Elisabeth Dutz and Helena Juncosa, which shows the artist's return to figuration and the diverse artistic perspectives of abstraction through the artist's brushstrokes. The exhibition consists of more than forty works including paintings, photographs and drawings, most of them large format.
The artist creates works whose purpose is to instigate the viewer to reflect on freedom in the creation of everyday images and the role on fatherhood by focusing on the interpretation of the children's portrait outlining the silhouette of his son Oisín. His works are characterized by the use of geometric shapes and a colorful palette whose balance derives solely from intuition and not from rational construction.
