David Brown Exhibiting Painting by Artist Brent Bruni Comiskey


The illustrious Houston florist and art collector David Brown is exhibiting a new painting by contemporary artist Brent Bruni Comiskey in his Uptown Park storefront’s central window this month. The large monochromatic abstract painting standing over five feet tall is titled “Crystal Moth” and will be on display both day and night at David Brown Flowers; moderately priced at $3,000. The painting’s wash of sublime whites and blacks and undercurrents of purple are zinged with mild bursts of geometrically subtle orbits referencing the work’s namesake. This piece would certainly bring life to any residential or commercial setting.

Brent Bruni Comiskey works in various disciplines of art and recently founded a rather conceptual grant for outsider artists under the nom de guerre of The Artwar Fund. Bruni Comiskey has exhibited video art at The Station Museum and Origin Magazine recently published a photograph of his titled “Love is God” which documents a stark graffiti heart painted on concrete. 2009 saw an exhibit at Ceron in Uptown Park containing 20 large format photographs and sculptural objects by Bruni Comiskey. In 2011 art collector Patricia Bruni donated work by Brent Bruni Comiskey and his sister Christine Bruni Fondren to the Art 4 Life benefit for AIDS Foundation Houston landing Bruni Comiskey a photograph alongside San Antonio artist Gabriel Diego Delgado in the Social Climbing blog published by the Houston Chronicle.

The world of art is slowly recovering from the global recession. A new crop of survivors is emerging from the historic downturn at a discount compared to the previously booming art economy during the days of Damien Hirst. This has produced a collector’s market where artists are working harder for their name and quarter. Those who appreciate art should take heed of this opportunity before the tide turns. We may be reminded who gets the last laugh in the near future. Those starving artists haven’t been sitting around thinking about nothing. Collectors may want to occupy art before artists occupy the next wave of highfalutin profits. A few lucky early birds will likely catch works by Brent Bruni Comiskey soon.
