Bruce Mitchell

Muse #3, Wood Sculpture

$2,400.00

Description/

Turned and carved redwood burl sculpture. Mitchell’s focus is to use his experience, instinct and intuition to visualize an intrinsic shape within the raw material that relates to its own unique personality, responding to the changing rhythms of positive and negative spaces that emerge as a form develops.

His intent as an artist is to draw upon nature and his excursions into dream worlds and the unknown by giving life to that experience through the language of sculpture.


Bruce Mitchell

designer

Bruce Mitchell has been working with wood for over four decades and is is widely known for his lathe­ turned vessels, sculptural tables, benches and abstract forms. In addition to books and catalogs, his work can be found in numerous museums and private collections throughout the United States. As Bruce’s early lathe work evolved from the austere, classic shapes of Asian ceramics into more spontaneous, one ­of ­a ­kind sculptural vessels, he began to expand upon the carving techniques he learned from his mentor J.B. Blunk in developing pure abstract forms from tabletop to monumental in scale. Among Bruce’s latest works is a series of wall­ mounted wood kimonos that represent his homage to that iconic art form. His work is in the collections of Arizona State University Art Museum, Decorative Arts Museum, Detroit Institute of Arts, High Museum of Art, Oakland Museum of Art, Racine Art Museum, Renwick Gallery, American Museum of Art, Smithsonian Institution, Yale University Art Gallery
