    Scully's bricks of colour are connected to people and places. Though an abstract painter, his paintings convey the real world. Deceptively simple, they seem to have been laid down quickly, with great ease, while, in fact, their relationships are complex, unsettling and full of potent emotion. Scully is a Romantic in Modernist clothing, a painter who is profoundly connected to the tradition of European painting while being wedded to the expansion of painting's contemporary vocabulary. (S. Hubbard, ‘Scully, Sean:Wall of Light Desert Night',The Independent on Sunday, London, 17 August, 2007)
