A migrant to Tasmania from the US, Bruce Edwards is a retired IT executive who finds creative outlet in the pursuit of drawing, painting and printmaking. He takes particular inspiration from nature and the many unique landscapes found across Australia and especially his home state of Tasmania. A filmmaker early in his career, Bruce uses photography extensively as the source for his projects but aspires to reexpress the drama latent within the literal image. “My background in film, television and photography makes me appreciate the freedom and control inherent in painting and drawing: the ability to transform the composition, lighting, tonality and focus of a subject to reveal something that the camera has not captured.”
