The Third Dimension of Abstract Planes

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 toward 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 single volume. Besides numerous pictures, it also contains extensive essays about his work.

Sean Scully (*1945, Dublin) is one of the world’s most acclaimed contemporary artists. His oeuvre is characterized by an intense confrontation with Abstract Expressionism, Action Painting, and Minimalism. Sean Scully divides his time between New York and Munich. His works will be shown again in many exhibitions in 2019.
