Summary note
The most comprehensive publication on the artist's production, featuring about 100 works, created within the last ten years. Bruno Dunley's (b. Petrópolis, Brazil 1984, lives and works in São Paulo) works depart from encountered images and an analysis of the nature of painting in which linguistic codes, such as gesture, plan, surface, and representation, are understood as an alphabet, a shared vocabulary. Recently, Dunley's practice turned to gestural abstraction, without, however, leaving aside the representation of everyday objects. This is a daring project from the editorial point of view. The works are shown from the same viewing angle, with a bottom wall and a residual margin of a concrete floor. The continuity of this floor constitutes a kind of linear exhibition space. The book is an innovative graphic project, which proposes new relationships between the artist's works. Composed of double pages with flaps, which the reader may open and close to form various arrangements between the works - almost an exhibition format, linear, but not chronological. Contrary to a critical text about the artist's work, the publication is divided into two conversations: "One Conversation" between the critic and art curator Carlos Eduardo Riccioppo and Bruno Dunley and "Another Conversation" with the recording of the dialogue between Bruno Dunley and artists Rodrigo Andrade, Ana Prata, Leda Catunda and curators João Bandeira and Carlos Eduardo Riccioppo, frequent interlocutors of the artist. These two conversations create a background for the reader's approach to Dunley's work and the issues surrounding contemporary painting and art.
