It is not surprising that Bruno’s work has garnered much critical acclaim over the years. An impressionist at heart, Bruno’s exquisite city scenes and sweeping vistas have always captivated viewers, reminding them of familiar and exotic places. Bruno’s affinity for color enhances vibrant memories, visions, and associations of place. His brushwork is invigorated and loose, while his unique spatter technique updates the traditional impressionist style. Glistening like light through the canvas is Bruno’s signature 23 ½ karat gold leaf work, which adds a lively shimmer to his full sun canvases and quiet effervescence to his night scenes. His career has come full circle as we celebrate his most recent body of work and the Boston Museum of Fine Art honors Bruno as the only living artist to receive special participation in the prestigious Art in Bloom exhibit.  In the top echelon of American art museums, this is a tremendous honor.

Color Derivatives 2017 My work is about the juxtaposition of emotion in time, and the confrontation between traditional representation and contemporary subjectivities. This body of work explores the manipulation of surface texture, color tonalities, light and the interweaving of time. Time past, and time future are united in a perpetual possibility of change. I try to capture the resonances of evolution in various types of representation. It is not about translating a world that already exists, but about an entrance into a different universe. A timeless, tactile world of sensation and overlapping memory . Materials and emotions converge: The surface holds synthetic binders consisting mainly of layers of inks, acrylics, watercolors, pigments, gold, fabrics, wax, photographs, and oil paint. These are imbued with altered states of feelings and archetypal references and are captured in the color tone derivatives. I believe in the continuity of historical and intercultural exchanges as a form of communication and association. The spacio - temporal confrontation is about the transience of tangible reality and the illusionary nature of beauty we can hold onto both visually and materially.
