Sean Scully on Painting
The Museum of Fine Arts – Hungarian National Gallery is proud to present the first retrospective in Central Eastern Europe of the life’s work of Sean Scully, one of the most important contemporary exponents of abstract art. His oeuvre combines formal reduction with referential complexity, geometric construction with vivid self-expression.
In this video, which was made on the opening day of the exhibition, the artist talks about his attitude towards painting as an art form and what motivates him to create.
