Inner The Collected Writings Of Sean Scully from the Author: Sean Scully. Sean Scully (born 1945) is among the greatest abstract painters of our age. He is also one of the most outspoken. Since the late 1960s, Scully's visual expressiveness has been matched by a verbal dynamism that is no less arresting than his art. Varying widely in form from brief reflections to essay-length meditations on artists such as Van Gogh, Morandi and Rothko, Scully's writings are distinguished by a brutal lyricism and an effortlessly aphoristic turn of phrase. The nearly 200 texts that comprise this collection provide a unique perspective on one of the most engaging artistic imaginations of the past half-century. Here, readers will discover the effusions of a mind tirelessly wrestling with the profoundest issues of art, cultural history and what it means to be a creator in the contemporary world. The texts are illustrated by images including facsimile reproductions of handwritten pages which also feature drawings.

Bilderwelt Von Sean Scully from the Author: Sean Scully. Rectangular squares of color 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 abstractthe aesthetic value of pure form, pure surface, and pure color. "My paintings talk of relationships," 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." 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.

This book accompanies and celebrates the inaugural exhibition at the new Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, designed by the Japanese architect Tadao Ando. The central subject of and impetus for this building from the beginning has been art, with particular emphasis on the display of the permanent collection. Of the 153,000 square feet of space to support space that emphasizes art like few museums in the world. That the first exhibition in these pristine galleries is devoted to the collection is a testament of pride and priority. Works by approximately 150 artists, covering a wide range of movements, especially postwar Abstract Expressionism, Pop art, and Minimalism, are currently displayed over the Museum's three two-story gallery pavilions. Together they present a broad range of styles and media, from oil, acrylic, and mixed-media paintings and drawings to photography, sculpture, installation art, and video and digital imagery. In honor of the Museum's 110th anniversary, 110 of these artists have been chosen for inclusion in this publication. Each artist's work is presented in the form of a large color plate and a detailed text entry, together with footnotes and key artist information. A selection of the artists - notably Philip Guston, Anselm Kiefer, Gerhard Richter, and Robert Motherwell - are presented in the form of extended monographic essays, accompanied by up to eight works, as a reflection of their importance in the Museum's permanent collection and their wider importance in the development of postwar art.

Unique Act from the Author: Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane. Six seasoned writers and authorities on contemporary art come together in this book to explore and celebrate the work of five modern artists. Unique Act accompanies an exhibition at Dublin City Gallery the Hugh Lane and also makes a major contribution to the place of abstract painting in the art-historical annals.David Carrier's introduction traces a history of abstraction which sets the scene for the birth of these artists. He describes the theoretical development in modern art and then offers examples of its practice in these painters' work. He draws out the links between French Impressionists and the art reproduced in this book, comparing Frederic Thursz with Monet and Carmengloria Morales with Manet.Frederic Thursz became a legendary figure in the 1970s and 1980s, holding exhibitions in Europe and America. Sean Scully is considered to be the leading abstract artist of his generation. Carmengloria Morales works on shapes that echo the Old Masters: tondo and diptych. Seán Shanahan and Ruth Root challenge many of the accepted norms of older abstraction. The essay contributors in Unique Act acknowledge the singular nature of each artist but reveal them to be united by the common thread of the abstract practice. This is a book which offers a theory of abstraction as a tradition and demonstrates the significant roles of these artists in constructing a canon for this movement.
