“There’s a lot of melancholy in me that gets unpacked onto the paintings. And the paintings, in a certain sense, can’t go wrong because… it has to go right. In a certain sense, I’m just along for the ride.” —Sean Scully
On top of an exhibition of his Landline series this fall at the Hirshhorn in DC (September 13, 2018–February 3, 2019), Sean Scully has a busy year coming up, with some 20 solo exhibitions across the globe, from the Forte Belvedere and the Museo Uffizi in Florence, Italy, in June to the De Pont Museum of contemporary art in Tilburg, the Netherlands (now through late August), and the Yorkshire Sculpture Park in Wakefield, England (September 29, 2018–January 6, 2019). Here, Galerie Magazine pays a visit to his Hudson River studio.
