Rosanna Bruno on Heart as Arena


Proving once again that abstract art is alive and well, our friend in New York Brent Burket posts a great report of a studio visit he did with abstract painter Rosanna Bruno.

If you’ve forgotten what a great prose stylist Burket is, here’s just one paragraph from the post–which has some beautiful photos, too:

Bruno’s lines seem to trace the path of some unstoppable rhythm, every painting a new and complex song. Although de Kooning is an obvious influence, the painter I found myself thinking about most was Bonnard. Like the French master Bruno brings colors together that really shouldn’t work and makes them sing their own strange, deep harmonies.
