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 catalog 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.
