Kasia Bruninay

Painter

Evocative and compelling works of Kasia Bruniany reveal the intimacy of our physical world, inviting contemplation of places and events where emotions define a singular moment in time.

Drawing from the entire body of her rich European heritage, the artist explores the boundaries between realism and abstraction, fusing together the contradictory qualities of real and imagined, classic academic and modern abstract, intentional composition and intuitive gesture. The subtly narrative, ethereal subjects breaking through mystical, gestural backgrounds suggest elements of real life, the visual reminders of her personal experiences and emotions.

While many of Kasia’s paintings could be described as a pictorial energy that vibrates and moves through time, her other collections, with a myriad of organic lines and shapes, would evoke memories of a remembered landscapes. In her series “Enhanced by Time”, the artist reflects on a continuum of enduring human experiences, reviving recognizable, sculptural figures from the ancient mythologies that still resonate across time.

Kasia Bruniany started her artistic self-discovery journey at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, Poland. While learning practicalities of painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, photography, and design, she also studied philosophy and the theory of art. In 1988 she received Master of Fine Arts degree in Art and Design with a minor in Interior Design.

The artist has pursued an intriguing career path. Her series of etchings were exhibited across Europe. For the television, she created over one hundred set designs. Moving to the United States, in 2000, she started out in Pittsburgh as a graphic designer and then, art director, delivering unique solutions for commercial advertising and branding. 

In 2013, she moved to Florida to focus exclusively on her fine art. Fully immersed into her creative world, she is adventurous in her technical experimentation and bold in plumbing the emotional depths of her subjects.

She exhibited her art in numerous solo and collective exhibitions in the US and Europe, receiving numerous recognitions. In Sarasota, where she lives and works, she is represented by Dabbert Gallery, located on historic South Palm Avenue in Sarasota, FL.
