Exploring how we arrived at this point – from the archaic to a language of compressed space – Bruce Reynolds’ work invites consideration of the ancient and the ‘now’.
Bruce Reynolds’ work grew from collage to relief and sculpture over a number of decades. Recent residencies in Rome focused both studio and architectural works on relief forms that occupy the space between painting and sculpture, between drawing and architecture. He describes it as being both archaic and a fresh place of representation.
