Sean Scully: 2 October 2012 – 15 March 2013
“I am not drawn to tragedy: I believe that it is always possible to overcome it and that in the end a ray of light will shine through. I try to express light, and express hope. That’s how I would sum up my ambition ….”
Untitled, 6.10.01’ by Sean Scully is part of the Eton College art collection and is usually displayed in a working space of the School, intended as a point of inspiration in the daily educational experience of the students. It was exhibited in the Verey Gallery alongside other Sean Scully works, including etchings, watercolours, paintings and photographs, generously lent by Timothy Taylor Gallery and beautifully curated by Timothy Taylor himself.
