A stunning retrospective volume
on the internationally renowned
abstract painter Sean Scully.

Rectangular squares of colour are a signature element of Sean Scully’s work. Whether tightly ruled and delineated, or murkily defined with rough brushstrokes, his hues and patterns evoke a deep spiritual connection to the natural world. This collection of paintings completed over 35 years pays eloquent tribute to the power of the abstract-the aesthetic value of pure form, pure surface, and pure color. My paintings talk of relationships,A” writes Scully in an interview conducted exclusively for this collection, How bodies come together. How they touch. How they separate. How they live together, in harmony and disharmony.A” Scully’s involvement with this beautiful volume extends to its design. The result is a compelling exploration of one of the most important living artists’ work.
