Alex Bruning: Sabbatical Paintings and Ideas for Paintings

February 4 - 27, 1985

"The drawings and paintings in Alex Bruning's present exhibition exists as part of a creative cycle, reasserting and redifinning themes and formal structures from an earlier period of Bruning's work... Deliberately formally unresolved in terms of traditional painting, the images also speak eloquently of a human inability to resolve life's conflicting pressures... Light and colour save these paintings from despair, but their images identify anxiety as a central concern in this mature redefinition of Brunning's vision."Essay by Sheila Butler.
