Stewart Michael Bruce

Stewart Michael Bruce
merges painting and photography to create phantasmagoric images that capture the imagination.
With the help of masterfully employed technological tools these digital photomontages take on a quality of serving as illustrations for real life. At the same time, with the integration of drawing, watercolors, charcoal, and handmade texts, the works retain “more of a fine art patina than a highly-digitized,
glossy sheen”. He avoids the use of filters,
which make the work look more mechanic—like
graphics rather than art. His subjects range from
the political (the protest against the Iraq war) to
the sentimental (childhood recollections), from
cityscapes to deeply personal nostalgia. Bruce’s
works are consistently organic, seamlessly
integrating his training in oil paintings, (digital)
print media and batik, always with an eye for
the ephemeral. Stewart Michael Bruce studied
Art and Design at Great Yarmouth College
and Norwich School of Art and Design. His
work has been shown across Europe, Asia and
the US, and has been published in national
and international digital art magazines.
