Richard Bruce
The atmospheric paintings of Richard Bruce immediately transport the viewer into a dreamlike landscape while also mimicking the stabilizing force of the horizon. 'That thin place where the earth becomes sky' - described in the Gaelic tradition as Coal ait - informs Bruce's art ascribing to it a transcendental place that is at once familiar and yet unknowable. Bruce’s abstracted works might conjure images of the Hudson River School - perhaps not surprisingly since the artist lives in the region north of New York City and near to the Hudson. With a more subdued palette, Bruce’s works are nonetheless reminiscent of Color Field painters such as Mark Rothko, both in their ability to envelop us and in their spiritual sensibility
