Madrid, Spain. 1955.
Rosa Brun’s works are based on the absolute absence of representation and on the material essentiality of color as support, form and surface. In this way, she creates in the viewer opposing sensations of weight and lightness, emptiness and fullness, verticality and horizontality, inviting us to inquire into the structures and our own perceptive capacity.
In the artist’s own words: Matter as a support, its chromatic, tactile qualities, its brightness, its color, the minimum of its appearance, surprise me; I identify with its precariousness and its inevitable relationship with the constant balance of the procedures that make up my work, between what appears and what is not, between the minimum and its overflow in large surfaces; the tight imprecision of materials, edges, shadows, corners, the lateral, the overlaps that intertwine with timbres of sustained and unfinished brushstrokes, to say something, to look for that last pulse to the reality of what is not there.
