Sean Scully Uses Orange

1900 GBP

Oil on wooden palette

47 x 38 x 5 cm

Framed in a clear perspex box frame


Sean Scully has indeed painted with orange although he is unlikely to have painted with this particular shade of neon! Holly Frean paints a scene employing her usual wit; her paintings first make you think, then smile at their subject. Here, Scully stands in his overalls with his back to us, facing a work-in-progress, holding an open can of paint in one hand and a loaded brush in the other as though deciding where to apply the next stroke. What will he decide?


This painting was made as for Frean's Who's Counting? exhibition at Paul Smith's shop in Mayfair, London, in 2016.

Welcome to The Holly Frean Shop. Here you can buy limited edition prints and plates and (occasionally) original works from the studio of Holly Frean.. A Holly Frean-themed museum shop if you will!

Holly Frean is an artist of exceptional dedication and vision. She began her formal training as an architect and draughtsman but painting portraits took over. Her studio practice has since grown to include picture-making in all its forms, typically oil paintings on canvas and gouaches on paper, also printmaking and 3D work. Infused with wit and humour, Holly’s work draws on the lives of artists and uniquely documents the subtleties in a face, body or movement. Over the past decade she has evolved a highly personal and technically accomplished style.

Holly’s work has been exhibited extensively in the UK and America. Holly's imagination and versatility have recently led to coveted textile, ceramic and wallpaper collaborations with Anthropologie, Burberry, Andrew Martin and Paul Smith.

Holly has won numerous accolades including the 2012 National Open Art Competition Painting Prize (awarded by Grayson Perry) and regularly shows at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and the ING Discerning Eye at Mall Galleries in London. Commissions include those from the Duchess of Northumberland, designer Betty Jackson, comedians Russell Howard and Ricky Gervais, hotelier Kit Kemp, actor Russell Tovey and retailer Johnny Boden.
