Bruce Parker | Art + Ales
One event on March 4, 2018 at 12:00am
Bruce Parker is long term resident of Yellow Springs, OH, and is a firm believer that everything has value and purpose. His artwork is a true testament to his belief in this statement as his art is mainly composed of found objects and reclaimed wood. His creations also represent his ideal that a person or object’s purpose can change and evolve over time. As a child, Bruce was always interested in being an artist and creating beautiful things. However, work commitments took precedence over his passion to create until five years ago when he was inspired while attending a church sermon. His work features a reoccurring theme of rebirth and repurpose, as well a passion for inspiring others. As Bruce puts it, “I hope my art enriches and encourages you!”
Bruce’s inspirations are mostly found in nature. Things such as sunflowers, dragonflies and the natural grain and texture of the wood in which he is working are his main influences. He mathematically explains his art philosophy with an equation of his own making “P= MC2= A / Purpose = Mattering and Caring2= Art, now that’s relative!” This theme in his work is an homage to Bruce’s spirituality and love for his church. Bruce has been very active in the Yellow Springs art community ever since his artistic beginnings and has always a supporter of local art.
