A bit about Bruce Cull
Bruce Cull is profoundly connected to the environment and to his historical roots. Raised in a small community in Northern Ontario, he pursued his studies at the Ontario College of Art and the University of Calgary. Returning to Northern Ontario to raise his family of four children and to develop his art, he has continued to grow as an artist and as a bilingual teacher at workshops both in his community and wherever his work was on exhibition. He participated in the Ontario Art Council Artist in the Schools programme and for a period of time was the curator/director of the Temiskaming Art Gallery. Bruce has always maintained a vibrant and vital art career, exhibiting in many galleries.
Cull’s exhibition history demonstrates that he has won many awards and participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Ontario, Alberta, and New York. Nature and the environment inspire and nourish his work. Most recently, his works explore our loss of connection in a rapidly changing, technologically isolating world. Bruce’s compelling pieces of art are a passionate and creative expression of our deep connection and relationship to our environment and consequently to one another.
Bruce currently lives on a 200 acre former dairy farm near Earlton, Ontario. His working studio was once a granary for cattle. Many of the objects incorporated into his works have been salvaged from the land as he works at developing trails to criss-cross the property. His stewardship of the land speaks directly to his connection with it.
