Sean Scully: Insideoutside

Exhibition catalogue

Sean Scully: Insideoutside

Sean Scully conceived his exhibition 'Insideoutside' in Skulpturenpark Waldfrieden as a dialogue between the park and the architecture of the museum, producing several new indoor and outdoor sculptures on this occasion.

Sean Scully: Insideoutside

Through numerous preparatory drawings and installation views, the catalogue focuses on Scully’s three dimensional approach that visually translates into stripes, squares and stacks – reflecting the visual lexicon he uses in his abstract paintings – in a vast array of materials such as steel, stone, wood and glass.

Sean Scully: Insideoutside

We didn’t know what is was, this colossus of cardboard, but we thought it could be religious. Having loaded a giant van with flattened cardboard boxes, we saw from the end view, as we stood on the street, a beautiful tan coloured abstract painting. Though we also knew, but couldn’t see any longer, that this abstract painting was cubed.
