Para enteder el arte. Sean Scully on painting. To understand art. Sean Scully

Creo que hay que leer y ver mucho arte para enteder algo de arte. Para este fin es bueno oir a los artistas personas que, habitualmente, no se expresan bien, en el sentido amable de la palabra, quiero decir que no se les entiende o, sencillamente, son tan pedantes que logran que no interese nada lo que nos cuentan sobre su obra.
Pues bien les recomiendo que vean y oigan a Sean Scully comentando sobre su obra y su pensamiento artístico. Muy agradable, didáctico, cercano en sus palabras, muy interesante. ( al final la obra de arte te tiene que gustar, atraer, pero también explica que no solo es eso como mucha gente cree)
Seguro que no estarán de acuerdo con todo lo que dice pero, pienso también, que despues de ver este vídeo sabrán un poco más ver arte, cualquier arte ( fotografía, pintura, escultura..)
Recordemos que este artista tiene una gran relación con España:

Sean Scully's intervention

From the very beginning, the painter proposed to maintain the contemplative and meditative atmosphere of this church. Very soon the artist chose his Holly series as the main theme for Santa Cecilia. He had conceived this series in 2004 and had shown it at the Kunstverein in Aichach.
This ensemble is a personal interpretation of the fourteen Stations of the Cross, which he had painted in memory of his mother Ivy, shortly after her death. Scully saw himself, when he was only six years old, looking scaredly at the Stations of the Cross in the little church of Highbury, while a heavy hailstorm pounded on the roof. The 2004 series Holly was dispersed after Aichach exhibition, but in this final installation in Montserrat, Scully has recreated the ensemble again, in a different way, but with a similar intensity with the name Holly-Stationes.
