Executed in 2018, Peony is utterly paradigmatic of Russian artist, Lavrenty Bruni’s renowned floral lexicon. Indeed, flowers are at the very heart of Bruni’s artistic language and have been adopted in a whole host of different formats within his practice; alone and piteous in nature; grouped and riotous and even in an array of dazzling petals. In a moment of artistic flurry, Bruni sets paintbrush and palette knife to canvas to create these beguiling landscapes.

For Bruni, texture is an essential element that varies enormously from one work to another: in his iconic oil paintings such as Peony, the thick paint that is generously extracted from a whole tube is instinctively spread in one stroke and barely mixed with streaks of other vivid colours. Passionately applied, the luscious strokes of paint that dance across the surface of the present work bespeak an artist who has truly emancipated his brush from premeditated thought and has entered into the emotive realm. Indeed, in Peony Bruni almost sculpts the paint in a three-dimensional way, fighting with the material to make the hues vibrate so sensuously.
