I love the the fluid materiality of oil paint and dynamic energy of color. My large scale paintings transform interior spaces with light, color, emotion and beauty.
I create abstract oil paintings on canvas, inspired by the beauty of our diverse planet. I'm interested in places we are drawn to in our lives and stories that belong to these places. They become reference points for me at various stages of the painting process.
American painter, Donna Bruni is known for creating atmospheric paintings with broad, richly layered planes of color. Her compositions are based on form and flux of natural and urban environments. Daily observation of changing light, air, water, wind, earth, sky, seasons and life cycles become contextual elements for her meditative works on canvas. In the studio, her painting process focuses on creating mood and emotion, as layers of color are applied. The process involves mixing oil pigment directly on large canvases with a palette knife, building depth by scraping, lifting or brushing out areas to reveal detail beneath the surface.
