Bricklayer of the Soul
Bricklayer of the Soul records the reflections of those who have witnessed first-hand Irish-American abstract painter Sean Scullys rise to international prominence. Born in Dublin in 1945, Scully has been described by the legendary art critic Arthur Danto as belong[ing] on the shortest of short lists of the major painters of our time. This unique book captures an astonishing range of voices and visions, featuring insights from his friend Bono to the celebrated novelist Colm Toibín, from the artists wife to five-year old son, Oisin. Anecdotes as brief as a sentence to compressed essays of intimacy and eloquence are presented alongside a career-spanning selection of paintings, drawings, photographs and pastels. This extraordinary volume, conceived in celebration of the artists 70th birthday, is edited and introduced by the poet and critic Kelly Grovier.
