Venice: Biennale – Around Town – Palazzo Falier - Sean Scully – Land Sea. The exhibition presents a selection of monumental works made for the occasion, representing the research that Scully has undertaken in recent years, contributing significantly to the debate on the importance of abstract art in the contemporary. Those Scully, writes Danilo Eccher, the curator of the exhibition, are "works that suggest a poetic dimension but do not escape the experience of light, alla its rifrangenza, its expansion chromatic, sinking in the tradition of Venetian coloring and insisting in the rigor of a current conceptualism.”

Palazzo Falier - Sean Scully – Land Sea. The Venetian project has led the artist to relate to his memories of the lagoon city, the colors and movement of water, the bricks but also with the suggestions of the luminosity of Tintoretto, with the tonality of Bellini and Titian materiality color.
