Seán Scully

Thursday 27 August at 6:15pm
Saturday 29 August at 2pm

All are welcome to join, two free tours of Seán Scully’s exhibition Figure / Abstract to celebrate Nation wide Heritage Week.

Figure / Abstract is Scully's first ever museum show in Cork and coincides with his seventieth birthday on June 30.

Figure / Abstract  features works from 1964 to the present, most of which have never been exhibited before. Scully is best known for the epic 'stripe' paintings he has made since the early 1980s: few are aware that he explored figurative painting before turning to abstraction. The exhibition will feature examples of his earliest drawings and paintings, tracing his evolution as an artist through the 1960s and into the 1970s and beyond. The largest work featured is Horizontal Soul (2014), a monumental oil on canvas over eight metres in length.

Tours last approximately 1 hour / No booking required
