Description

'Sean Scully:Doric' will be Irish/American artist Sean Scully's first exhibition in Greece. The focus of the show will be six monumental Doric paintings that the artist has been making since 2008. Immense in scale and ambition the paintings have as their genisis the Doric principle which originated in ancient Greece. Scully's works often have about them an architectural order and these new paintings take these principles to new levels. Existing somewhere between the abstract and the figurative they have about them something of the essential and the eternal. An artist talk with Oscar Humphries will take place on 8 May at 19:00 and the exhibition opening at 20:00.
