Sean Scully – Sculpture



ISBN: 9783775746069 Category:

Sean Scully’s abstract paintings are world-famous. In them he moves far beyond a purely formal confrontation with color, form, plane, and light by also incorporating his attitudes to-ward art, society, ethics, and metaphysics. To date, however, little attention has been paid to the fact that he also creates sculptures. For these, Scully layers elements made of steel, stone, bronze, and painted aluminum on top of each other, creating horizontal structures that expand upward, yet are also linked to the stripes in his paintings. This monograph is now the first to compile Scully’s important sculptures in a sin-gle volume. Besides numerous pictures, it also contains exten-sive essays about his work.
