Uninsideout, Sean Scully’s first exhibition with Blain|Southern, will offer an overview of the artist’s multi-faceted practice.

About

'I want my paintings to be obvious, so that when you see them you feel that I have painted something you were thinking yourself, as if I have stolen the thought from you.'

Sean Scully

Opening in the London gallery during Frieze week, the presentation will encompass large-scale, multi-panel paintings, as well as works on paper, sculpture and a group of his celebrated Landline paintings. In recent years, Scully has started painting on both aluminium and copper, exploring the interaction of paint on metal, and the 'dull but vibrant light' it yields. The Landline paintings and multi-panel works in this exhibition, all oil on aluminium, showcase the artist's 'inexplicable fascination' with this medium. 

Born in Dublin in 1945, Scully grew up in London and settled in America in the mid-1970s. One of the most admired abstract painters working today, his work draws on the traditions of European painting, invigorated with the distinct character of American abstraction. 

Scully views abstraction as ‘an equal opportunity art form’; a universal language that can be read by all. In a career spanning six decades – and counting – Scully has risen to international prominence, with work held in major public collections worldwide.
