Sean Scully is one of the most important abstract artists of our time. His new publication, Landlines and other recent works, accompanies the artist’s major solo exhibition at De Pont Museum, Tilburg, and centres on three important bodies of work: Doric, Landline and Eleuthera, Scully’s first representational works in half a century. The publication also presents a generous selection of previously unseen early works, illustrating the world-renowned painter’s development as an artist. High-quality photography illustrates the artworks both individually and in situ at the De Pont Museum’s unique exhibition space. The publication also includes three exemplary pieces of critical writing; Rudi Fuchs, the foremost Dutch art critic of his generation, gives a rigorous analysis of Scully’s robust and architectural Doric series of paintings, Kelly Grovier, poet, art critic and author of 100 Works of Art That Will Define Our Age, contributes an extensive, melodic text tracing the deep roots of Scully’s recent figurative paintings, while art critic and lecturer Declan Long reflects upon Scully’s undulating Landline series of paintings.
