Comics With Still Life: Finding The Inevitable Place

Opening Reception Sept. 5 6-9pm

Sept 5 – Oct 17

“…But when the August news turned us to this village of Carmel
instead; and when the stagecoach topped the hill from Monterey, and we
looked down through pines and sea-fog on Carmel Bay, it was evident that
we had come without knowing it to our inevitable place.”
-Robinson Jeffers

Last winter, Will Bruno set out on a quest to find his own
inevitable place. To find a place that speaks to him the way Carmel
Bay did to Robinson Jeffers and his wife, Una, a century ago. He has
visited many beautiful places, but is not sure he has found his own just
yet. Bruno finds himself asking wether it is still possible to find an
inevitable place.

galleryHOMELAND is pleased to present this new body of work from Will Bruno.  Having recently finished a residency at The Sitka Center For Art and Ecology, which couples artist and Natural scientists together in a creative and research-based environment, Bruno shows new works created on the Oregon coast. Centered on his struggles to find a place that speaks to him, Bruno creates art at the intersection of painting, installations, and comics.  Will Bruno lives and works in New Mexico and Portland, Oregon, and in 2012 received an MFA in Contemporary Art Practice from Portland State University, studying with Kristan Kennedy and Pat Boas. Will Bruno was recently asked to contribute drawings to the catalogue for the 2014 People’s Biennial at the Museum Of Contemporary Art Detroit.

Please Join us at galleryHOMELAND for this amazing opening of new work and installation of Will Bruno September 5th from 6pm-9pm.  For more information please contact Portland Gallery Director Reese Kruse 402-936-1379
