Summary note
Over the past 50 years, Scully has created an artistic system of his own, gathering and developing the best plastic traditions of the early 20th-century avant-garde and combining them with complex metaphysical philosophy from the Ancient Greeks to theorists of the present day. In Scully's art, color and line, subject to the erosion and articulation of boundaries, express the key social problems of humankind. His rigidly structured works are full of very subtle shades of meaning and emotion. Developing the ideas of non-objectivity, richly and diversely expressed in the work of the Russian avant-garde artists (Kazimir Malevich, Olga Rozanova, Lyubov Popova, and others), Scully also dwells on contemporary philosophical practices reflecting today's rapidly changing reality.
