Published on the occasion of the exhibition in the historic church of San Giorgio Maggiore in Venice, the volume gathers recent works and new, unseen pieces by the celebrated abstract artist who has created a series of new sculptures, paintings, drawings, and watercolour works directly inspired by the monks’ Abbey of San Giorgio Maggiore, by their vast illuminated manuscript collections and by the 16th-century Benedictine church. Works instantly recognisable by Scully’s visual vocabulary of horizontal and vertical stripes, which reflects fifty years of constant refining.
