"More than any other artist of his generation, Sean Scully combines European traditions of painting with forms of aesthetic experience whose roots lie in America - specifically, in New York. This tends to encumber the reception of his oeuvre. From one point of view, based on a particular set of ideas and expectations, Scully's work appears insufficiently bold and radical: it seems to lag behind the sophisticated conception of art which emerged in the 1960s, ignoring contemporary developments and harking back to more traditional notions of painting. On another evaluation, which is no less on-sided than the first, his work is too unstable and hermetic. Both these views are to some extent justified; looking at their positive aspect, each of them says something significant about what happens in Scully's pictures. In his work, modern art seems to turn in on itself and reconsider its own founding principles..." Extrait de "To humanize abstract painting. Reflections on Sean Scully's 'Stone Light'" par Armin Zweite. Ref LAR0181
