Kathy Bruce is a New York-based visual artist born in Ithaca, NY. Her work explores archetypal mythological figures within the context of the natural environment. These take the form of sculptural installations built in natural materials such as bamboo. Her site-specific structures are representational rather than biomorphic or abstract. As a result, this approach allows the interpretation of multi-level meanings to the viewers’ experience of her works. Her exhibitions include Kingsbrae Gardens, St. Andrews, New Brunswick, Canada (2017); Land-Shape, Land Art Northern Denmark, collaboration with Alastair Noble (2016); The Guandu Nature Park, International Sculpture Festival, Taiwan (2015); Cheng-Long International Environmental Art Project, Taiwan (2014); La Napoule Foundation, Mandelieu, France (2014). Kathy is a recipient of Creative Learning Grant, LMCC, SU-CASA Grant , LMCC, NYC (2015,16,17); Creative Curricula Grant, LMCC, NYC (2013,14,15); Fulbright-Hayes Senior Research-Lecturing Grant, Peru (2012 and 1982); and The Pollock-Krasner Foundation Fellowship Award, NYC (2010). She received her MFA at Yale University, and a Certificate at The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
