BRUCE PEEBLES ART STORY
Lightscapes, Seascapes, Primordial Landscapes and my artistic approach...
"When I study the landscape around me, it reveals some of its soul yet hides so much more. I'm fascinated by the abstract qualities that I capture and create into my Primordial Landscapes Series."
Rhythm and motion are the driving forces in my art. I'm obsessed by the exchange between realistic representation and the abstract form, this is why I choose to paint elements of the landscape in a simplistic fashion.
Looking at my work, you might recognize these elements, but at the same time you may perceive these compositions as carefully designed abstractions.
I'm a multi-media artist based in Brisbane, Australia, with paintings, photography and mixed-media works represented in corporate and private collections globally.
Trained in fine art practices and techniques, honed over four decades in advertising photography, I travel, photograph and paint full time. Exploring the finer aspects of composition, balance, harmony and design I love breaking the rules, often turning experiments and mistakes into ideas and subsequent artworks.
My work is energetic and dynamic, reflecting the colors of my native New Zealand and the vibrancy and experiences of the Australian Landscape where I live, travel and love. I incorporate layers of acrylic, oils, inks and glazes, applied with brushes, sponges and textured media to create depth.
My signature collections include Sun Glitter, Primordial Landscapes, Ocean Spirit and the Central Australian Experience series.
My mission as an artist...
The principal purpose behind why I create is to share
the earth's wonder with the rest of the world.
My central goal is to enhance people's lives by
acquainting beautiful imagery with their soul.
