Bruce Anderson (American)
Born 1945, Mankato, MN
Lives and works in Minneapolis, MN
Bruce Anderson is known for his luscious abstract paintings of intense overlaid color that are constructed of broad swoops of juicy pigment that he trowels on with spoons, sticks, brushes, long metal spatulas and his hand. With figurative hints his paintings range in size from immense canvases to a small portrait-like scale. They often radiate a “push-pull” emotional duality.
Bruce Anderson’s drawings, prints and paintings are in the collections of the Walker Art Center and the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.
