Book Description: "Sean Scully (born 1945) is one of the leading painters of our time. His successful career has been built on an apparently simple recipe of abstract painted stripes and bars in muted colours, which, despite their apparent simplicity and serentiy, offer unsettlingly complex possibilities. His paintings are exhibited and collected by many major museums throughout the world, from Canberra to Washington, D.C." "This book brings together Scully's own writings for the first time, and presents them alongside superb reproductions of the artist's paintings. The collection reveals Scully's sense of his position within modern painting, and his understanding of and response to the artists whom he most admires. He discusses the circumstances that led him to become a painter; and outlines and expands on many of the themes that have engaged his art for the past twenty years."--BOOK JACKET.

Book Description: Sean Scully (born 1945) is among the greatest abstract painters of our age. He is also one of the most outspoken. Since the late 1960s, Scully's visual expressiveness has been matched by a verbal dynamism that is no less arresting than his art. Varying widely in form from brief reflections to essay-length meditations on artists such as Van Gogh, Morandi and Rothko, Scully's writings are distinguished by a brutal lyricism and an effortlessly aphoristic turn of phrase. The nearly 200 texts that comprise this collection provide a unique perspective on one of the most engaging artistic imaginations of the past half-century. Here, readers will discover the effusions of a mind tirelessly wrestling with the profoundest issues of art, cultural history and what it means to be a creator in the contemporary world. The texts are illustrated by images including facsimile reproductions of handwritten pages which also feature drawings.

Book Description: Painter, photographer, watercolorist, and printmaker Sean Scully roams the world with his camera, capturing its surfaces in places as far-flung as Mexico and the Aran Islands, as close to home as his own studio. His photographs sometimes consist of close-up shots of his own paintings, wherein he zooms in on the material reality of his richly painted surfaces and transforms their colors and shapes into a different abstract configuration. More often, Scully goes from recognizable objects in the larger world to subjective impressions of them. Snapshots of façades, windows, and doors are never straightforward recordings of architectural elements. By depicting fading walls, cracked surfaces, rough edges, and the deep shadows created by them, these images capture beauty in decay, and evoke the basic contradiction of nature and life: solidity and fragility, timelessness and change. As metaphors of physical and mental conditions, the photographs capture the memories, feelings, and thoughts connected to the experience of that reality. It is precisely this continuing interchange of the recognizable and abstract worlds, the visible and the invisible, that empowers Scully's works in all media.

Book Description: Sean Scully is one of today’s best-loved abstract painters. Over more than thirty years, he has produced a vibrant and compelling body of work that is widely collected and internationally exhibited. His familiar signature style of lines or bands of colour is one of the most instantly recognizable in contemporary painting. This book is an illustrated monograph to present an account of the artist’s entire life and career, from his childhood in 1950s London, via New York and Barcelona, to the present day in Munich. Lavish reproductions of his major works illustrate the text, while photographs taken by Scully on his travels show some of the forms that inspire them. Photographs of Scully at work in his studio demonstrate how he creates his pictures, from blank canvas to finished work. Art historian and critic David Carrier traces the development of Scully’s oeuvre and assesses its significance. A concise chronology, exhibition history and select bibliography, as well as an interview with the artist, complete a volume which should be found on all contemporary art bookshelves.
