Christopher Derek Bruno wants you to think about relationships. His paintings force you to consider at least two. The first is a physical one, and it’s between the viewer and the painting. He builds three-dimensional shapes to manipulate the image the viewer sees depending on where they are standing in relation to the painting in a gallery. He considers the slow walk we all do at shows, and allows the three-dimensional structures to manipulate his painted forms as we leave a work.

The second relationship is between the enamel colors he paints onto those three-dimensional forms. He uses very transparent colors, and layers geometric shapes to achieve a similar effect to overprinting, most commonly seen in silkscreen printed work. We think his work is meant to be seen in motion [via booooom].
