Peter Bruun is at heart a figurative artist. From the late 1980’s through 2015, all of his abstract works (presented in a square format) had been based on self-portraiture: the works literally begin with mark-making from observing his face in the mirror, and then constellating those marks not to render faces, but rather an infinite variety of abstract, rounded forms. A figure against a ground. In 2016, in a radical shift in methodology, Bruun began making works based on figures in relationship, and he broke away from a square format. This has opened an entirely new vein for abstract exploration; more about relationship than identity.

Each work is $300 + $25 shipping and handling. Mr. Bruun is generously donating 2/3 of the proceeds to the piano series. See bottom for purchasing.

Untitled 1: Pastel, charcoal

Self-portrait 14" x 14" 1997 For 'Untitled 1-5': "Exploring the relationship between line and color. I was giving shape to identities of diverse character (or aura), based on varying decisions I made with color, line, and shape, but staying within a basic parameter of blocks of pastel color edged with lines. I loved how the pastel powder collected on these drawings like a patina, especially along the bottoms. They become living, evolving things."
