Özet

This research aims to analyze the originality in which Sean Scully caught using geometrical abstract forms with the details and his contemporary approach in seeking for humanistic values. The artist believing that it is impossible to escape from abstraction for our age draws attention of the art critics with the density of details in his paintings and the emphasis upon humanistic values in recent years. He considers it necessary to reflect human sensation, human sensibility in mechanizing world more than absolute formal elements such as color, form, line. His approaching to the horizontal-vertical quadrangle forms adding an extraordinary amount of sensational density and his highlighting the spiritual side of the art which has become complicated nowadays with the help of his paintings and writings are of the important reasons for analyzing him.
