Christopher Le Brun: Interview

Image coming soon.

Jill Spalding interviews painter Christopher Le Brun on the occasion of his exhibition at Friedman Benda, New York, on view through October 18, 2014.

Le Brun comments: "The potency of buried content can be as psychologically powerful as narrative; every brushstroke throws off an association… I let the work speak for itself. I don’t push the image because I want to leave you with a sense of immanence. From the drama of the image in my earlier work, I’ve switched to this other drama where the image is erased or obscured. [He points to Painting as Sunrise, a massive, burnished flame of a painting that held an image of a blue horse, until he revisited it months later and painted it out]. The horse was there and now is not there, which is its content – both its implication and its meaning. I no longer need to manifest it; it is present."
