Known primarily as a painter, Sean Scully also makes sculpture and a new exhibition at Waldfrieden Sculpture Park in Wuppertal, titled ‘Insideoutside’, highlights his work across several materials, including stone, steel, wood and glass, making large works for both indoors and outdoors. Like his paintings, his sculptures are characterised by grids, lines, stripes and blocks, carefully composed and layered together to produce an architectural quality. Scully relishes sculpture’s raw materiality, as well as the direct experience of weight, volume and physical robustness it can offer.
