"Mr Postman, do you have a letter for me? Mr Postman, do you have a letter for me? A letter for me From my own true love Lost at sea Lost at sea" - the decemberists
1. "Cheim & Read is pleased to announce Landline, an exhibition of six new paintings by the Irish-American painter Sean Scully. Begun in 2013, Scully’s Landline series resonates with newfound urgency and freedom. Thick horizontal bands of subtly-layered color provide his compositions with rhythmic pulse, while the interactions between striations of paint bristle with energy. Though reminiscent of the physical landscapes which inspired them, Scully’s canvases are activated by an emotional and intuitive terrain.
The retrospective, Follow the Heart: The Art of Sean Scully 1964–2014, curated by Philp Dodd will be on view at the Himalayas Art Museum in Shanghai until January 25. This exhibition will travel to the CAFA Museum in Beijing from March 13–April 23. Scully is the first western abstract artist to have a museum tour in China. Scully also has major upcoming exhibitions at Pinacoteca do Estado in São Paulo from April 11–J uly 11 and at the Palazzo Falier in Venice from May 9–November 22."
