In his large-format paintings, Sean Scully layers colors on top of each other to create opulent paintings. Most of the time, the pictorial composition is strictly divided into vertical and horizontal stripes, while the application of color is gestural and emotional, creating in the process Walls of Light -poetic walls of color of great physical force, powerful and permeable at the same time. The catalogue accompanying the exhibition at the Langen Foundation is devoted to the musicality of Scully's abstract compositions and their artistic play with the power of color. The spectrum ranges from works on paper from the late 1960s, to his expansive paintings, and monumental steel and iron sculptures of recent years, with which Scully's idea of art leaves the exhibition space and transcends into the outside world. SEAN SCULLY (*1945, Dublin) is one of the world's most acclaimed contemporary artists. The

oeuvre of the irish-born artist, who grew up in London and moved to New York in 1975, is characterized by an intense confrontation with Abstract Expressionism, Action Painting, and Minimalism-matched by intellectually engaging writings and lectures. Scully lives and works in New York, Barcelona, and near Munich.
