Sean Scully (born 30 June 1945) is one of the foremost abstract artists alive today. I have been enthralled with his geometric paintings since the early 90's when I was in graduate school. His paintings call up so many ideas. They could be stones stacked on walls, old plank buildings, aerial views of modern cities, or windows and doors. Or, they could be nothing at all, just beautiful shades of colorful rectangles balanced on a picture plane. To me, that is really what they are. I see them as quiet introspective moments. Perhaps, haikus of color.
Below is a great article that I found onBlainshouthern.com. It is worth a look and a read.
