Sean Scully (born 1945) is one of the leading painters of our time. His career has been built on an apparently simple recipe of painted stripes and bars, and yet these bricks of colour offer unsettlingly complex possibilities. When Scully writes, his ideas work their own slow magic, and behind the deadpan delivery lurks a concise and considered understanding of the nature of painting and what it means to be an artist in the twenty-first century. This unprecedented collection of Scully's writings, interspersed with superb reproductions of the artists paintings, includes his thoughts on Matisse, Morandi, Newman, Rothko and Van Gogh, alongside lectures given on his own work and his musings on such varied themes as life, love, colour, criticism, creativity and the machinations of the international art world. AUTHOR: Florence Ingleby is a director of the Ingleby Gallery, Edinburgh. Sean Scully has had over 120 solo exhibitions worldwide. He has studios in New York, London and Barcelona, and in Munich, where he is a part-time professor of painting at the Akademie der Bildenden Kunste. SELLING POINTS: The first published writings of one of the world's leading painters Outlines and expands many of the themes that have engaged Scully's art for the past twenty years Reveals Scully's sense of his position within modern painting, and his understanding of the artists that mean the most to him 120 colour illustrations
