ROSA BRUN

ACORDES DE MATERIA Y LUZ​​

"The medium as a support, its chromatic and tactile qualities, surprise me, its brightness, color, the minimum of its appearance, I identify with its precariousness and its inevitable relationship with the constant balance of the procedures that make up my work, among which appears and what is not, between the minimum and its overflow on large surfaces, the adjusted imprecision, of materials, edges, shadows, corners, the lateral, overlaps that intersect, with tones of sustained and unfinished brushstrokes, to say something, to look for that last pulse to the reality of what is not there”.

 

Rosa Brun.

She studies Fine Arts at the Complutense University of Madrid and obtains a Doctorate at the University of Granada, currently Professor of Painting. Her work addresses the pictorial problem within new avenues for abstraction that develops in the Spanish scene of the nineties. Since the end of the eighties, her painting has dismantled the limits of the medium, from the purely two-dimensional to the spatial installation and the relationship with architecture. The use of supports in materials such as aluminum or wood, iron, glass, paper among others that give certain expressive qualities to the paintings, simple geometric shapes in flat fields of color, in strong, acidic and contrasted tones, with a slight expressive and gestural invoice, defines her works that are arranged on the wall, one on top of the other - forming layers, juxtapositions or overlaps- or as free-standing objects that interact with each other in the architectural space, taking into account the viewer's perception to create in it opposing sensations of balance-chaos, heat-cold, weight-lightness, empty-full, verticality-horizontality. This painting-sculpture-installation updates and develops problems that derive from minimal art or North American color field painting reminiscent of Ad Reinhardt, Donald Judd or Barnett Newman, among others, which connects her work with European post-minimalist movements.
