Sean Scully - "Eleuthera" (2017; Oil on aluminum)

This exhibition is CANCELLED due to the coronavirus epidemic.

Sean Scully is known above all for his highly expressive abstract paintings of colorful stripes or rectangles. But it is an entirely new side of this artist that comes to light in a work series presented at the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium.

The series Eleuthera from the years 2015-2017 revolves around a very private subject: these 23 large-format oil paintings show Scully’s eight-year-old son Oisín playing at the beach on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas.

This exhibition shows all of these oil paintings by Scully as well as smaller pastels, drawings, and photographic works.

The Eleuthera series was recently presented in Vienna (Albertina Museum, 07.06 > 08.09.2019)

This exhibition has been organised by the Royal Museums of Fine Arts Belgium in cooperation with the Albertina
