TRAVELING ARTIST BRINGS EXHIBIT HOME TO MANITOBA
New York born, prairie raised Katharine Bruce has spent the past five years finding inspiration between the west coast of Canada, the central mountains of Mexico, the plains of Nebraska and the prairies of Manitoba. She returns to her prairie home to share new works from her travels.
“My surroundings nurture me in a very real way. I feel them feeding me an extraordinary energy,” says Bruce. “That, combined with my passion for life, powers my day to day, and gives me the inspiration that results in the works I create.”
“I think of my work as naturalist abstractions which invoke real or imagined environments. Improvisation is an important part of my work process. I never know before hand what will appear – there are no preconceived notions.”
Bruce has gained international acclaim for her wide range of abstract reflections, creating subjects that provoke, inspire and delight. Her zest for life at a heightened level of physical and spiritual intensity fuels her artistic expression.
Throughout her professional career, Bruce has worked with pottery, handmade paper, sculpture and mixed media. Known for her cityscapes and landscapes with a twist, her work shows a disciplined master of design with line, colour and texture.
Prairie Homecoming showcases Bruce’s affection for her prairie home in colourful, enticing abstracts, which, like the prairies, bring a sense of wonderment to the viewer.
