Spanning over 50 years this exhibition brings together 100 works; oil paintings, watercolours, drawings, sculpture, writings and prints from 1968 to now focusing on the role of the square in Sean Scully’s groundbreaking career.

From his paintings in the early 1970s through to his monumental ‘Crann Soilse’ (‘Wall of Light’, 2003) wall of alternate white Portuguese limestone and black Chinese basalt stone cubes, commissioned by the University in Limerick, Scully’s art relates and processes the tensions and links between built structures and the oblong forms he creates with his paintbrush. Throughout, the square has been a stabilising, structuring component, a containing format within which the artist has found expansive latitude to experiment and develop.
