The April issue of Apollo has an interview with Irish-American abstractionist Sean Scully and reproduces a couple of his recent paintings on aluminum. Scully's son Oisin was born in 2009.

Scully paints "wet into wet," applying layers of color to others that have not yet dried. "It blurs and unifies at the same time, and it causes a kind of creation that you can't ever get to the bottom of. When I make a painting, I can't remember how I made the colors, and I can't explain how I get one color different from another color."
