"Sean Scullypastels from the artist's "Wall of Light" series. In the 1980s and 90s, Scully embarked on a significant body of work following a number of trips to Mexico, entitled Wall of Light. In this series, Scully transcribed his experience of colour and light as he travelled through Mexico and witnessed the interplay of light and shadow on the stacked stones of ancient ruins and architectural formations. The resulting paintings combine colour and shape in a way that is airy and balanced. These paintings confirm Scully's position as one of the world's foremost painters.
