Brüne, Liesel

Liesel was born on 2 September 1964. She matriculated at the Wesvalia Highschool in Klerksdorp and obtained a BA degree in Visual Arts at the University of Pretoria in 1986.

Liesel's love of nature and the flowers of the Western Transvaal where she grew up are clearly depicted in her work. Soft oils on canvas, rich in shades and textures, give life to her paintings. She is fond of playing with negative space and the underlying tension between objects...and this creates serene and flowing peace that calms the senses.

Liesel believes that colour plays a very important role in the creation of a work of art since it determines the mood of the viewer's emotion. "I have always been influenced by the old masters such as Rembrandt, Vermeer and all the classical artists and I especially like the combination of darkness and light, shadow and sunlight. Strong lines and heavy composition also influence me as well as classic still lives", says Liesel about her work.

She already had 6 successful solo-exhibitions and formed part of many group exhibitions over the last 10 years. Her inspiration comes from nature and she loves using oils for her work.
