INNER: THE COLLECTED WRITINGS AND SELECTED INTERVIEWS OF SEAN SCULLY. Kelly Grovier. Hatje Cantz Verlag, Ostfildern, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 256 pp. with 40 col. ills. 26 x 19 cm. ISBN 9783775741644 In English.
Due date: November 2016. Publisher's description: 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.
