Sean Scully by David Carrier( Book )

10 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and French and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sean Scully is one of today's best-loved abstract painters. Over more than thirty years, he has produced a vibrant and compelling body of work that is widely collected and internationally exhibited. His familiar signature style of lines or bands of color, alluding to architectural elements such as portals, windows and walls, is one of the most instantly recognizable in contemporary painting." "This book is the first fully illustrated monograph to present an account of the artist's entire life and career to date, from his childhood in 1950s London, via New York and Barcelona, to the present day in Munich. Lavish reproductions of his major works illustrate the text, while photographs taken by Scully on his travels show some of the forms that inspire them. Photographs of Scully at work in his studio demonstrate stage by stage how he creates his pictures, from blank canvas to finished work." "Eminent art historian and critic David Carrier traces the development of Scully's oeuvre and assesses its significance. Drawing on his many conversations with Scully, Carrier provides unique insights into the artist's working methods and the motivation for his art. A concise chronology, exhibition history and select bibliography, as well as an interview with the artist, complete a volume which should be found on all contemporary art bookshelves."--Jacket

Sean Scully : the art of the stripe by Brian P Kennedy( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sean Scully has made the motif of stripes his own, offering through them a sustained exploration of the nature of human relationships. We learn to read his stripes and colored shapes as meditations on, for example, union and disunion, dependence and independence, or harmony and disharmony. But because his images are not figurative, they can seek a universal appeal, color and form being understood by all cultures. This book by Brian Kennedy; Director of the Hood Museum of Art at Dartmouth College includes interviews with the artist about his career and, in particular, his preoccupation with stripes, as well as essays on the stripe in Western abstract painting and in Sean Scully's work of the past four decades."--Jacket

Sean Scully at work : three short films( Visual )

5 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1997 Robert Gardner visited friend and well-known American painter Sean Scully in his Barcelona studio. He documented the making of two paintings, Testigos and Passenger, and the opening of "Sean Scully 1987-1997" at Salas del Palacio Episcopal in Malaga. This video, an important document of an influential modern artist, brings together the three short films made during that summer. Testigos - 10 minutes: Testigos is a small painting done when Gardner and Scully worked together in Barcelona. The title, which means 'witnesses, ' is the name of a small island in the Caribbean. Testigos, and at least one other painting, was made on the days that the larger canvas Passenger was drying. Passenger - 25 minutes: In Passenger, Gardner made what he calls "an observation in four movements." The intent of the piece is to impart an experience of the engagement by Scully with the work in question, an engagement which is both physical and emotional. The only sounds are those made by the artist as he works and, occasionally, musical passages from tapes Scully listens to while he is painting. Scully in Malaga - 7 minutes: A short film acknowledging the efforts of those responsible for installing the exhibition "Sean Scully 1987-1997" in Malaga. Equally important, the film captures Scully's parents dancing their beloved 'paso doble' in the midst of their son's work

In Conrad's haunting tale, Marlow, a seaman and wanderer, recounts his physical and psychological journey in search of the enigmatic Kurtz. Travelling to the heart of the African continent, he discovers how Kurtz has gained his position of power and influence over the local people. Marlow's struggle to fathom his experience involves him in a radical questioning of not only his own nature and values but the nature and values of his society. --From publisher's description
