Today we feature work from the online portfolio website of painter Donna Bruni whose work explores a delightful range of colour choices and combinations. These works seem to embody an ephemeral essence throughout the application of both abstract and figurative techniques. Bruni offers multiple methods of mark-making from soft painterly strokes to surfaces that look like they might be scraped, scoured or peeled to reveal secret layers of colour below.
"American painter, Donna Bruni, creates abstract oil paintings that reflect places visited, remembered or imagined, suspended within layered surfaces of color. Her recent series, Floating to the Surface (2009-2013), inspired by conversations at memorial sites in El Mozote, El Salvador, Gernika, Spain and New York City, considers intangibles such as hope, compassion and loss through the painting process. Her new cityscape series marks a return to bold color, movement and light as subjects for abstraction." - www.donnabruniart.com
