MARIA BRUNNER. Galerie Gisela Capitain, Cologne, 2017. Published in association with Snoeck Verlagsgesellschaft, Cologne. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 130 pp. 25 x 20 cm. ISBN 9783864421778 Bilingual in English and German.
Due date: Forthcoming. Publisher's description: Berlin-based Austrian painter Maria Brunner (b. 1962) devoted an entire year to painting the regal amaryllis, the flowering plant from the winter-rainfall region of South Africa, whose trumpet-shaped winter blooms mark the coming of spring. For the first time these meditative paintings are included in Brunner's new monograph featuring 90 color plates and covering the past three years of work. In addition to the amaryllis series, large-format canvases depicting floating drapery (2015) and small folded glassine ink drawings (2016) are included. Brunner's work has transitioned over the years from her early surface-driven technique to hyperrealism to her current play with realism afloat an atmospheric ground. Characterized by profound doubts about whether things are as they seem, and overpowering in painted detail, this latest cycle of oils departs from her previous work in its focus on single subjects located within chiaroscuro backgrounds, producing a sense of magical realism.
