Signed, dated and titled centrally down, in print, Roland Garros, 2001, Sean Scully
Sean Scully is an Irish-born abstract painter and printmaker who has been nominated twice for the Turner Prize.
In spite of initially adopting a hard-edge style, Scully became increasingly fascinated by the motif of the stripe, which he has continuously developed and refined. In recent years, for instance, he has conceived of a compositional patterning that resembles a checkerboard. According to Scully, this stylistic choice was influenced by the nature of his native country: "I remember growing up in Ireland and everything being chequered, even the fields and the people."
