About the artist (1946)
Influenced by Paul Cézannes, Brandy went to France in 1972 and followed an education at the École des Beaux-Arts in Aix-en-Provence.
With almost primordial forces the artist works his canvases. Interchangeable elements clash to create a visual spectacle. Staying true to his expressive abstract style, Brandy’s work has undergone some changes. In the 1970’s and early 1980’s the artist put emphasis on producing light environments which gradually became darker in the late 1980’s. In contrast, in recent years, the artist has returned to a simpler approach.
Throughout his career Brandy also created silk screen prints that are related to his large scale work. Another interesting facet of his oeuvre are the installations that the artist created post 2000. Their pictorial quality, including elements of collage, could be regarded as three-dimensional versions of his paintings.
