Bruce Paterson Gallery
Sculpture; Watercolour; Oils; Poetry
Bruce Paterson was born in Manchester, England in 1948, and has had a lifelong passion for art. Despite travelling and working at various jobs following his four years at SFU, and an eventual career as a high school Biology teacher for 26 years—a career he is particularly proud of, Bruce always did articles and artwork for various magazines and newspapers while teaching. These included: Kootenay Cameos, a monthly ink drawing and story about various heritage sites, people and buildings scattered through out the Kootenays (he did this for almost nine years); The Kootenay Naturalist, another monthly column that dealt with ink drawings and an article about some form of wildlife in the Kootenays; but he enjoyed most of all his stint with the local newspaper when he became the editorial cartoonist for almost six years. During that time Bruce did about 380 editorial cartoons that were just as detailed as any of his other ink drawing works.
Since retiring from teaching almost 14 years ago, Bruce has been able to explore all sorts of venues and has unleashed his imagination in the pursuit of whimsical, fanciful, edgy, erotic subject matters often incorporating his writing and poetry. Many of his ideas and notions have been expressed in ceramic sculpture as figures, plaques and tiles. Drawings and paintings in oils, watercolours, ink and most recently coloured inks—especially metallic inks—have become a favourite.
