Bruce Pearson - painter and printmaker An Artist in the Natural World
Home Current Work for sale Profile Archive Contact

As an artist fascinated by wildlife I work as often as the opportunities arise out in the wild where the rhythm and restlessness of wildlife and elemental landscapes - and sometimes people -  interact creating powerful images and dramatic themes about the natural world.  

The starting point has to be the field experience as pure observation is the raw material - perhaps a few small sketches, a larger more considered drawing, or an ambitious painting which one hopes distils something of the day’s experience. A work straight from the field can sometimes be framed and exhibited as it is; what’s left is taken back to the studio to be viewed in a new light and the snatched ideas worked through in different mediums - relief printing, mono and screen printing, or oil painting.

This site sets out to convey a feeling for some of those field experiences and to show a range of creative processes and some of the atmosphere of an artist’s studio.  The site also shows some of the outcomes - pieces of finished work, work in progress, or some of the exhibitions and other events where paintings and prints are shown.

Over a period of almost 40 years working as an artist I have travelled widely in search of  subjects from the Arctic and Antarctica, to Africa, much of Europe, and the Americas.   However, I’m spending more of my time these days in my new studio at St. Barnabas Press in Cambridge (UK) working through the creative debris accumulated during those visits to wild places.
