Bernhard Brungs

Posted by Liv Siddall,

A healthy fascination with archetypal literary figures is a common symptom with artists but in few is it so prevalent as Bernhard Brungs. In paintings created by priming canvases with chalk and then lacquering layers of oil paints over the top, Brungs invents intimate (and fictional) scenes involving some of the world’s most prolific writers including Virginia Woolf and Arthur Rimbaud. His work is currently on show at Produzenten Galerie where you can make up narratives to go along with the paintings in the company of the smokey, bespectacled German art crowd.
