British artist Christopher Le Brun recently celebrated his 70th birthday, but despite having been painting for decades, the artist remains as deeply curious about why he paints and where his inspirations come from as when he started. In fact, in his London home and studio, the artist keeps a framed drawing he made in his younger years, the dash-like passages in the sketch echoing the mark-making in his most recent gestural canvases.
Now, with his third exhibition with Lisson Gallery, “Momentarium,” Le Brun is presenting a group of ambitiously scaled canvases—including, for the first time, monumental triptychs and diptychs.
