Contemporary Santa Fe Art Gallery on Historic Canyon Road

Brigitte Bruggemann

Brigitte Bruggeman  canvases make reference to places in nature; a forest, a garden, a tree, evoking a keen awareness of cyclical growth and decay, spontaneity and restraint, to make visible the invisible.

With gestural brushwork, drawing into fields of vibrant color, the artist pulls the viewer into rich, lush surfaces, dynamic lyrical organic forms. Her movement and marks on the canvas suggest that of a branch moving in the wind, or the river flowing by her house in New Mexico, in joyful celebration of life.

Passages of pure painting, impasto or glazes, offer themselves as touchstones for another reality – glimpses of “What is behind it All”
