Sean Scully. Body of Light

Sean Scully is one of the most significant international figures of postwar abstract painting. His work draws on the influence of Mark Rothko, bringing a sensuous, painterly quality to the application of geometry. Scully’s work involves the sequence, variation, and repetition of squares, rectangles, and checkerboard patterns.

This volume is broadly representative of the artist’s work, including oil paintings, watercolors, drawings, etchings, and photographs from the last fifteen years. Scully’s photographs lead to an under-standing of his evocative use of form and color in vernacular buildings.
