Bruce Bleach, American
Bruce Bleach produces large contemporary abstract works of art in metal, on canvas, wood, and paper. The metal wall sculpture includes etched bronze with patina, mixed-media on embossed aluminum, stainless steel, copper, zinc, and acrylic on wood. His global wall sculpture utilizes unusual and unique formats, as well as, standard world map projections in metal, with painterly backgrounds in etched aluminum or wood. These contemporary abstract and global works of art are ready to hang, clear-coated, and maintenance free. Recently, he has incorporated signage and/or corporate logos in metal wall sculpture and bronze globes.
The metal wall sculpture, etchings, monoprints, and paintings on canvas and wood are in numerous private and corporate collections. Many of the original paintings and monoprints are now available as limited edition giclee prints and posters.
The Smithsonian Institute, Library of Congress has recently selected his etchings for their print collection as part of The Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop Collection.
Listed in Who's Who in American Art, his work has appeared in numerous solo and group exhibitions, galleries, publications, and residential and corporate collections throughout the country and abroad.
