Scientific Discipline Meets Pure Creativity: Art by Bruce Meberg
Bruce Meberg is a New York-based abstract painter. With an educational background in science and a great love for jazz music, the artist’s creations exist where scientific discipline meets pure creativity.
With series titles such as Astral/Quantum and Signs of Life, the scientific and speculative influence in Bruce’s work is clear. The paintings themselves are varied in execution, however the artist has a clear method and style which ties them all together nicely. I like Bruce’s loose, splashy painting and his love of bright, highly saturated colors. In particular, the deep red tone that becomes a common motif is quite inspiring and gives the impression of gazing at a fire-y sunset.
Bruce has also translated a few of his abstract works into the form of silk scarves, printing the image of the painting onto the delicate material. The effect is quite interesting as the painting becomes softened by the texture and translucency of the fabric, allowing us to see a whole new facet of the work.
