Published by Cheim & Read.
Text by John Yau.

Sean Scully (born 1945) is known for rich, painterly abstractions in which stripes or blocks of layered color are a prevailing motif. The delineated geometry of his work provides structure for an expressive, physical rendering of color, light, and texture. Scully's simplification of his compositions and use of repetitive forms--squares, rectangles, bands--echoes architectural motifs (doors, windows, walls) and in this way appeals to a universal understanding and temporal navigation of the picture plane. However, the intimacy of Scully's process, in which he layers and manipulates paint with varying brushstrokes and sensibilities, results in a highly sensual and tactile materiality. His colors and their interactions, often subtly harmonized, elicit profound emotional associations. Scully does not shy away from Romantic ideals and the potential for personal revelation. He strives to combine, as he has said, "intimacy with monumentality." This volume surveys works of the past three years.

Sean Scully: Change and HorizontalsSean Scully: Change and Horizontals

Published by The Drawing Center.
Text by Joanna Kleinberg, Brett Littman, Colm Tóibín.

Sean Scully’s move from London to New York City in 1975 marked a stylistic breakthrough to a period in which he became more engaged with the textures of the metropolis that surrounded him. Culled from two distinct series, the Change and Horizontals drawings--executed in London and New York respectively--highlight the primacy of color and form in Scully’s abstractions. Impressions of each city are fundamental to these drawings, as location plays a key role in the artist’s oeuvre; as the artist stated in 2006, “People tend to think of abstraction as abstract. But nothing is abstract: it’s a self-portrait. A portrait of one’s condition.” This publication accompanies an exhibition organized by The Drawing Center. The works, reproduced as full-color plates, are comprised of acrylic, ink, graphite and masking-tape drawings from 1974–75, as well as two large-scale paintings from the same period and the artist’s notebooks.

Sean Scully: Light of the SouthSean Scully: Light of the South

Published by TF Editores/D.A.P..

The painting of Sean Scully (born 1945) has a fascinating relationship to place. Born in Dublin, Scully began his career as a figurative painter in London, in the years when Freud and Bacon still dominated Britain’s art climate. A trip to Morocco converted Scully to abstraction: “It was the endless potential in the rhythm and structures of the visual world there that moved me,” he says, of its Arabic visual character. As his painting slowly gravitated towards abstraction, Scully realized that New York was the city in which he would most fruitfully develop, and moved there in 1975. He attributes his first New York series, Horizontals, to his apartment’s view of the city and the Hudson river. In spring 2012, Scully’s art is reunited with the Arabic culture that first inspired his embrace of abstraction, at the stupendous Moorish fort-palace in Granada, the Alhambra. The exhibition and this accompanying catalogue are divided into three parts: seven large paintings from the Wall of Light series; a set of 40 watercolors; and three photographic series, which intriguingly illuminate Scully’s image-making process--Aran, Santo Domingo for Nene and Alhambra, the latter of which is published here for the first time.

Text by Matthias Frehner, Stella Roig, Annick Haldemann, Brigitte Reutner.

The painting of Sean Scully (born 1945) is unmistakable in its simplicity, and yet generative of endless variation and richness. His chunky, heavily worked, vertical bands of color abutting horizontal bands of color, which may be applied to canvas or to metal plates, seem to explore and express everything that can be said with color, from steely sobriety to pulsating warmth. In this way, Scully continually develops the discoveries of predecessors such as Albers and Rothko. This book focuses on his most recent output, which the artist himself sums up thus: “All my life, I have been driven by some guilt or other. It is only in the past few years that this has ended ... and I increasingly like myself better for it. I only do things that I really want to do. This has caused me to attempt big things.”

Published by Charta/Galerie Lelong, New York.
Text by Tiffany Bell.

Throughout his 30-year career, the renowned Dublin-born artist Sean Scully has continually sought to reinvigorate abstract painting, and has succeeded in this attempt by finding ways through (rather than around) postwar American abstraction. Scully employs a reductive vocabulary of thick horizontal and vertical bands of color, which perform an interplay of mass, light and shadow, through which he reconciles the ordered character of early European Modernism, with its ideals of harmony and spirituality, and late American Modernism, with its use of less harmonious, expressionistic compositions. Scully has described this tension: "I'm trying to capture something that has a classical stillness and at the same time has enough emotion or dissonance to create an unresolved quality." This volume, published concurrently with an exhibition at New York's Galerie Lelong, features 22 recent paintings, including works from Scully's much-admired Wall of Light and Robe series, plus recent watercolors and drawings.
