Bruce Peebles

Hometown: Brisbane

Bruce is 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, Bruce travels, photographs and paints full time. Exploring the finer aspects of composition, balance, harmony and design he loves breaking the rules, often turning experiments and mistakes into ideas and subsequent artworks.
His work is energetic and dynamic, reflecting the colors of his native New Zealand and the vibrancy and experiences of the Australian Landscape that he travels and loves. He incorporates layers of acrylic, oils, inks and glazes, applied with brushes, sponges and textured media to create depth.
Rhythm and motion are the driving forces of Bruce’s art, utilizing a simplistic exchange between realistic representation and the abstract form.
