Christopher Le Brun: Doubles

Christopher Le Brun: Doubles
Library Shelf Location 18.BRUN
Publication Date 2018

Christopher Le Brun’s current body of work develops a longstanding interest in the ‘double’- conceptual and embodied duality.

The arresting diptychs and single paintings provide a direct continuation of his recent series of prints, Composer (2017) which explores the musical form of distinct yet related movements and the essentially layered structure of both painting and music.

Working directly on the woodcut proofs, these new oil paintings extend Le Brun’s lifelong preoccupation with colour –‘ experiencing rather than seeing’ as he describes it, ‘a property of the world we delight in for itself’ – and represent radical experiments in the juxtaposition of colour, tone transparency and form.

Features an essay exploring dualities across a number of disciplines, by exhibition curator Anna Dempster.

Publication accompanies the exhibition, Christopher Le Brun: Dualitiesat Wolfson College, Cambridge (12 May — 26 August 2018).
