“I am always looking at the horizon line – at the way the end of the sea touches the beginning of the sky; the way the sky presses down on to the sea… I think of land, sea, sky. And they always make a massive connection. I try to paint this; this sense of the elemental coming together…”


A boy on the shore sets off for home as the sky and sea darken. For Scully, this melancholic picture is one of Turner's most profound works, to which he feels a deep connection. He charts a personal journey of deep admiration for colour, composition, and the power of painting.


This is my interpretation of “Sea Star”, a coming together of colour (scraped inks), the rhythm of colour and the sensuality of rich, nostalgic colour.
