Resistance and Persistence : Selected WritingsBook - 2006
"Sean Scully (born 1945) is one of the leading painters of our time. His successful career has been built on an apparently simple recipe of abstract painted stripes and bars in muted colours, which, despite their apparent simplicity and serentiy, offer unsettlingly complex possibilities. His paintings are exhibited and collected by many major museums throughout the world, from Canberra to Washington, D.C. This book brings together Scully's own writings for the first time, and presents them alongside superb reproductions of the artist's paintings. The collection reveals Scully's sense of his position within modern painting, and his understanding of and response to the artists whom he most admires. He discusses the circumstances that led him to become a painter; and outlines and expands on many of the themes that have engaged his art for the past twenty years."--BOOK JACKET.
