White Window is one of Scully’s largest works. He has described its dynamic, deliberately unresolved composition as a work of ‘uncensored emotion’. The dark stripes, painted in various widths, push oppressively against each other. Their thick brushwork contrasts with the lighter, more energetic handling of the ‘window’, an inserted white panel that literally opens up the composition. The clearly-defined lines of the window also provide a contrast with the wavering edges of the horizontal and vertical stripes.
