About the event

Bruno moves freely from one medium to another to create a wide range of images. Atmosphere, mood and colour are the key ingredients in his oil paintings with multiple layers of gesso, paint and soil featuring in the more abstract and experimental canvases. A few years ago, Bruno began to delve into the fascinating and limitless world of illustration and is now incorporating his deep connection with music into his art.  Along with art, Bruno's other two absolute passions have always been music and cinema, so it seemed only natural that one day he would collaborate with musicians and filmmakers. His work is an honest expression of his emotion and what presents itself at that moment in time, through his life experience.

The main body of work derives from the passing of Bruno's Maman in May, which left him with an overwhelming sense of emptiness. Feelings of losing a huge part of himself, needed to be explored through art.

In Bruno's own words,

'At the beginning of this project the question was never “What am I going to express?”, the evidence of loss dictated the creative process. Once I had portrayed the emptiness and explored the immediate experience of loss, I decided to move on to the second part of the exhibition. This was born out of the need to balance the intensity of the first part with warmer, lighter vibes. I took this great opportunity to finally venture into a world that has fascinated me for some time now and to create a few illustrations in a comic book style. Something playful expressing the child in me, as childhood memories of innocence are rekindled. Moving freely from one world to another, from death to life, from adulthood to boyhood has helped me to create a diverse body of work while remaining very close to my recent experience.'

Bruno's work is held in collections in the Isle of Man, France, UK, Spain, Poland, USA, Canada, Australia and Pakistan.

We can't wait to share his new exhibition with you.
