About

Large abstract geometric drawing of circular white moons on a gray graphite background with grid patterns “The Moons of Jupiter” by Hudson Valley artist, David Dew Bruner, made in 2020 Graphite on paper, vintage black painted wood frame 101 x 21 x 2.5 inches vertical dimensions Can be oriented vertically or horizontally Ready to hang as is This abstract geometric graphite drawing was drawn by David Dew Bruner in 2020. This monumental verticle drawing of circular orbs on a graphite gray background is a abstract depiction of Jupiter’s moons. The drawing is completed with multiple layers of graphite as the white circular forms are juxtaposed on a grid pattern of gray graphite. At close range, the viewer can notice under layers that were erased and redrawn. Although quite large, the piece's impact is softened by the use of shading and the roundness of the orbs. The artist fit the original in a vintage wood frame painted black and can be oriented horizontally or vertically. About the artist: When he’s not designing stained glass or city park gardens, David Dew Bruner unleashes yet another facet of his talents via graphite drawings. A wealth of knowledge, both studied and intuitive, Bruner finds inspiration in many of his artistic predecessors. In his process he retains a resonating detail from a particular series of work and then reinterprets and reassembles the influence into his own drawing experience. Oftentimes, drawings are the accumulation of up to four pre-existing images, as an ode to Rauschenberg's erased DeKooning piece, drawn and erased any number of times until the pinnacle of Bruner's vision is achieved. Bruner has the eye of a hawk, and his years spent in dealing antiques means he knows a treasure when he finds one. Therefore, his studio, once an old train depot in Valatie, NY, has been tastefully converted to not only house his personal collection of art and mid century modern fixtures, but also to store a stockpile of vintage and modern frames. As he zealously produces one inspired work on paper after the next, he predestines a frame for each drawing before it is completed. In recent years, the artist has made two new series inspired by Morandi's bottle still lifes and Francis Bacon's portraits. The likeness of each artist's subject is expressed on paper, re-envisioned through Bruner's characteristic style of excitedly applied graphite that produce shard-like fragments embedded with deep interwoven marks. David Dew Bruner will also feature work inspired by Richard Lindner’s figures and Velasquez's Infanta Margarita.
