Bren Head

Back to Main Categories


Bren’s paintings evolve through an exploration of traditional techniques combined with unconventional media and methods. During a process of creation and destruction surfaces are re-worked to produce a textured and eroded finish. Many details may be painted over and obscured but Bren feels that the work underneath is necessary and vital to the finished piece and is an essential part of the painting’s development. The finished image becomes abstracted and more expressional than representational leaving the subject open to interpretation.
