Desire for Proximity: Let’s Play reflects Bruvels’ wishes, shared in this global moment, to be close, tactile, and pleasure-filled with others. Analogous with the histories of letting loose after catastrophes, her eye-catching, candy-coloured painted canvases dream of future physical proximities between bodies engaged in play.
Through an optimistic colour palette of fantastical compositions, Bruvels imagines a tomorrow for bodies in close togetherness. Is it time? When can we come out and play again?
