Bruce Pearson is a painter and printmaker. Over the past 40 years he has worked on a range of subjects and themes about species in wild landscapes, sometimes in more remote places where people and their activity interact with wildlife and habitats. He is fascinated by the rhythm and restlessness of the natural world and often completes a painting directly in the field, while volumes of sketches and studies provide ideas and fresh starting points for painting and printmaking work in the studio. His work has been widely exhibited in the UK and overseas in many group and solo exhibitions. His recent Troubled Waters project, in collaboration with BirdLife International, followed the lives and fortunes of the countless seabirds that collide with industrial fishing interests on the open ocean.
