🎨 Sean Scully, 56th Venice Biennale, 2015. 🎨 . Scully remarks of the show, “In making these paintings I was preoccupied with my memories of Venice, the movement of the water, how it heaves against the brick and stone of the city. From my studio south of Munich I often get in the car and drive a few hours down to Venice. It was the impressions from these trips that I brought back into the studio; I was painting the memories of Venice into the works.” . The exhibition pays tribute to a style of painting where colour is the undisputed protagonist, heightened by the light and brilliance of Venice. The works hark back to a long tradition of Venetian painting, from Tintoretto’s luminism to Bellini’s tonalism and Titian’s chromatic materiality, whilst insisting on the rigour of contemporary conceptualism. . #seanscully #venicebiennale #mayfairgalleries #venicegallery #modernartists #artblog #artforum #artlovers #kunstwerk #veniceitaly #biennale #contemporaryartists #contemporarypainter (at La Biennale di Venezia) https://www.instagram.com/p/BoYUqGLn4qG/?utm_source=ig_tumblr_share&igshid=1r7qbvya1o1zi
