Sean Scully – Glorious Dust
“Pastel involves rubbing friable chalk over toothed paper, which in its nature confers a certain sparkling luminosity to the forms, and it is responsive to differences in pressure. The principle of pastel, Scully once told me, is that of putting on makeup. Scully’s historical importance lies in the way he has brought the greatest achievements of Abstract Expressionist painting into the contemporary moment.” Arthur C. Danto Sean Scully uses pastels to create abstract works which are an emotive response to color. This book brings together 100 of his pastels in all their subtle and ecstatic celebration of the possibilities of color. Since 1993 Arthur Danto has written four texts about Sean Scully’s work. They are brought together for the first time in a volume which traces the history and development of this major artist in the writings of one of America’s leading art critics.
