Charlie Bluett and David Brayne, whose paintings fill the walls for Thoughts Left Unspoken, express two vastly different artistic points of view: Bluett’s work is abstract; Brayne’s is representational.
Bluett’s recent large paintings of overlapping, translucent shapes on pure white backgrounds have achieved widespread popularity and mesmerize viewers with entrancing color. Bluett says he found his inspiration in long walks along the New England shore collecting sea glass.
David Brayne’s small, rich paintings create a personal world of lyrical memory. Figures move as in a dream, casting no shadows; sea or land and sky blend imperceptibly and harmoniously together. Tenderness pervades Brayne’s vision, which has been called “exquisitely and quintessentially beautiful.” Brayne, too, finds inspiration in walking; he begins each morning with a walk along the Alham river in the countryside of Somerset, England.
