BRUICE MERCER

Born in Brisbane in 1942

 

Starting on concrete paths with charcoal from my  mums laundry copper after  wash  day, drawing on all the  pathways. In my teenage years, it took a course at the technical college down George street.

 

I studied commercial art for 4 years. Work at Allen & Stark in Queen Street and later at McWirther  in Fortitude Valley as  a window  dresser  and  display artist. I have also sold  artwork for book illustrations.

 

I enjoy working  with acrylics and oils, I also work with other mediums as well. 'Pyrography' My inspiration is from man made structures, nature, wild life ,sunset skies, light and shadows.

 

If I can visualize, walking into my subjects I have the feeling of my artwork completed.

 

Artistically there is no ultimate goal.... if perfection is ever achieved then my artistic journey is over for me.

 

My journey is more important than the finished goal.
