‘Sean Scully: A Retrospective’ is the only book to cover Scully’s entire career, including work in all media – painting, photographs, prints, drawings and watercolours – from the early 1970s to the present.
Scully is one of the most important abstract painters alive today. Over the course of more than thirty years, he has produced a body of work that is widely collected and internationally exhibited. His signature style of lines or bands of colour alluding to architectural elements such as portals, windows and walls is instantly recognizable.
Published to accompany a major European exhibition tour, the texts in this volume position the artist in his rightful place within the traditions of earlier abstraction and of painting in general, while discussing the spiritual, emotional and very human nature of his art.
