Bruce Sanders is an expressionist and abstract expressionist painter living in Malibu, California.
Bruce’s paintings are recordings of humble attempts to “look inward.” This process seems to be less of a clinical evaluation and more of a spiritual search. Bruce’s work is the product of reflecting upon the blessings, joys, sorrows, and losses he has experienced over a lifetime. Working mostly in acrylics and texture additives on canvas, Bruce uses dynamic colors, heavy texturing, bold lines, and kinetic forms as vehicles for the expression of his feelings and emotions.
Bruce’s work blurs the lines between representational and abstract art. It delves into a space between the real world and a “mystical-magical” dream-like realm. His hope is that those who view his paintings will be “drawn in” to analyzing, empathizing, and evoking their own feelings and emotions.
Bruce’s work has been exhibited in shows in Laguna, Newport Beach, Santa Monica, Ventura, Los Angeles, Sacramento, Palm Springs, Arizona, and New York. Bruce is a Member Artist of TAG Gallery (The Artists Gallery) in Los Angeles near the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). He is a member of the Los Angeles Art Association/Gallery 825. Bruce is also a Member Artist of Artlounge Collective in Los Angeles; and he is being represented by Blackdog Art Gallery in Tubac, Arizona. Bruce’s work has been acquired by collectors locally, nationally, and internationally. Three of his paintings are in a private gallery in Vienna, Austria. Bruce has authored four catalog art books: INTROSPECTION, I BELIEVE IN ANGELS, THE HEART WANTS WHAT THE HEART WANTS, and IMAGINATION. UCLA School of Dentistry has a collection of eighteen of his paintings.
