Ben Brown Fine Arts is thrilled to announce our first solo exhibition of celebrated abstract artist Sean Scully at the Hong Kong gallery. The exhibition will feature seven new paintings from the artist’s studio. This exhibition follows Scully’s lauded retrospective at the Hong Kong Arts Centre in 2018, which was co-organized by Ben Brown Fine Arts.
Born in Dublin, Ireland, in 1945, Sean Scully was raised in South London. He attended Croydon College of Art and received a Bachelor of Arts from Newcastle University in 1972. Scully moved to New York City in the mid-1970s, where he soon became a leader in the shift from then-dominant Minimalism, to arrive at a more emotional, humanistic abstraction in painting. Scully formulated his own abstract language and inimitable style, based on the grid and infused with a spirituality and reverence for colour and light, that has earned him the standing as one of the most preeminent artists of his time.
