For Jon Schueler, the sky was a conveyor of all things from life and death to love and fear. Schueler’s intense focus on the sky began as a boy in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he was born in 1916. This fascination deepened during his time in active service and ultimately led him to the Highlands of Scotland where he discovered the perfect landscape to inspire his pursuit of the Sublime. His skyscapes exist on the border between figuration and abstraction, being at once wholly recognisable as the skies above the Sound of Sleat, yet at the same time expressing an emotional and psychological gravity. This careful balance gave him a unique position within the Abstract Expressionist milieu with which he was so closely associated.
