Brunner and brunner der premium-mix


In his current exhibition, Brunner presents large-format paintings from his series of works “Ark” and “Atlas”, upon which he has been working, along with other projects, since the beginning of the 1990s. Whilst both motifs look back onto a long tradition of art history, Brunner correlates them with the present, by utilising cut-outs and photos from newspapers which he then mounts, adapts and repaints. In doing so, Brunner’s often space-consuming artworks vividly show the ecological, political and human dark sides of our existence, revealed in the moment in which the well-known motifs are (dis)placed into a current context and through which they are transformed. The motif of the ark is reduced to a doubtful lifeboat and Atlas, the Titan who carries the world, nearly breaks beneath his burden.
