In March 2016, Bruce Slorach exhibited at Saint Cloche Gallery in Paddington, Sydney (a sell out show!). Since Utopia Goods' inception, Bruce has been at the artistic helm of the company, illustrating every print, each textile featuring the mesmerising whimsy of his distinct hand and often taking months to execute.
"I've been painting since I was a teenager and have explored a range of diverse influences however I've always returned to the idea of a 'sense of place' and what surrounds me. I've never fitted into a particular 'box' but I've always loved the bush and native foliage. For the last three years, my practice has resolved around native flora and an exploration of historical botanical works. I love the way Australian plants have a very distinct other worldly personality and an almost Jurassic presence."
Bruce has participated in many exhibitions during his career including London's prestigious V&M Museum, The Victorian Gallery (NGV), The Australian National Gallery and The Powerhouse Museum (Sydney). His artworks are permanent acquisitions at several of these galleries. Bruce's body of work continues to feature regularly in many well-recognised Australian and international magazines and newspapers.
His paintings and illustrative works are available by commission from the studio or as limited (edition of three) giclee prints. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
