Bruno Leti : Series: A life of images / Thomas Middlemost.
Carlton, VIC : Miegunyah Press, 2022
xiv, 256 pages: illustrations; portraits; 28 cm.
A Life of Images examines enduring themes within the 60-year career of Australian artist Bruno Leti. The book is not so much a comprehensive catalogue of works as much as a study of Letis artistic process. The series in the title is a fertile space in which a train of thought technique or material can be stretched out and allowed to breathe. Throughout the book, what stands out in sharp relief is Letis fervent material diversity ranging from painting photography printmaking and drawing. Leti is revealed as a consistent and methodical artist, whose fascination with materiality colour and form is unwavering. His works are both figurative and abstract varying from photographic studies of lotus flowers in China to abstract oil paintings on marble fragments. His use of colour however is comparatively consistent: the monograph is brimming with sage, plum, and russet hues that persist across decades of work.
