We published these two silkscreen prints by Rosa Brun on the occasion of our exhibition “Tinta plana”, an exhibition that took place at the Casa Museo Angel Ganivet in Granada at the end of the summer of 2013. The proposal came to us from Joaquín Peña-Toro, the curator of this and three other exhibitions at the workshop.
Collaborating with Rosa Brun was going to mean an excursion into the “colour-field” (colour-field / Farbfeld). We printed with translucent inks, three layers in the central field, on handmade paper with a lot of texture, extending the stain beyond the margins of the paper. As minimal as maximal, total silkscreen printing. We edited these two silkscreen prints by Rosa Brun, and…. soon we will have the pleasure of working with the artist again!
The work of Rosa Brun (Madrid, 1955) moves between conceptualism, minimalism and American colour fields. She has been living and working in Granada since the 1980s. Her works are included in important public and private collections such as the Museo Reina Sofía in Madrid, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo Helga de Alvear, Cáceres, Museo Patio Herreriano, Valladolid, Fundación La Caixa, Barcelona, among others.
Rosa Brun holds a PhD in Fine Arts from the University of Granada and is Professor of Painting at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Granada. She is also the Coordinator of the Permanent Seminar on Contemporary Art at the University of Granada.
